LaPorte Police Nab Juvenile Escapees

Freedom was short lived for two of the three boys who escaped from the LaPorte County Juvenile Services Center Tuesday night. The boys were reported missing around 10 p.m. About three hours later police got a call from someone who spotted one of the boys in the 800 block of 3rd Street. The youngster was reportedly wearing all blue clothing and no shoes. Officers canvassed the area and found two boys hiding in a fenced-in area adjacent to Bethany Lutheran Church at 1st and H streets. Both boys, ages 13 and 17, were arrested on charges of escape and resisting law enforcement.
