|Police: Man passed fake bills for lotto ticketsWISH-TV / 5 h. 56 min. ago more|
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — Fort Wayne Police have asked for the public’s help to identify a man who authorities believe passed several counterfeit bills for lottery tickets at a gas station earlier this month. Police were called around 10 p.m. Jan. 7 to the Marathon gas station at 7440 St Joe Road on a report of a theft in progress by way of counterfeit bills. There, a clerk told police that a man had come into the store and was buying lottery tickets in high-dollar amounts, which she thought was “unusual for him,” according to a police report. The man then asked the clerk to return his change in $5s and $10s rather than $20s, which he was paying with, the report said. At the counter, the man announced he’d won a $75 prize and a $50 prize, the report said. The clerk told police that she did not cash out the $50 prize because she realized the $20 bill he had passed her was fake, according to the report. After the clerk told the man that the bill was fake, he said he’d won the money in a dice game and he “didn’t know what she was talking about.” When the owner of the gas station called police, the man said “he wasn’t going to jail for this” and fled, the report said. The man drove off in a silver car, police said. (Provided Photo/Fort Wayne Police Department) The man was dressed in a red hooded sweatshirt and gray shoes. The clerk estimated he was in his early-to-mid 20s and was 6’0″ to 6’2″ tall, the report said. Police released a surveillance image of the suspect on Tuesday. Anyone able to identify this suspect is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 436-STOP (436-7867).

|Ex-Indiana sheriff sentenced to 15 years for bribery, wire fraud convictionsWISH-TV / 8 h. 16 min. ago more|
HAMMOND, Ind. (AP) — A former northwestern Indiana sheriff has been sentenced to more than 15 years in prison for accepting tens of thousands of dollars in bribes from towing businesses. A federal judge ordered the roughly 15 ½-year sentence Tuesday for John Buncich. He was removed from office as Lake County sheriff after a jury convicted him in August of bribery and wire fraud charges. Federal prosecutors sought a sentence of at least 15 years, arguing that Buncich committed “a calculated abuse of power” to enrich himself. Buncich has denied any wrongdoing and his attorney maintains he was doing legitimate campaign fundraising. Buncich is a Democrat who was elected in 2015 to his fourth term as sheriff of Indiana’s second most-populous county.

|Gathering at Indiana Statehouse calls for hate crimes lawWISH-TV / 8 h. 49 min. ago more|
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Dozens of people from different walks of life and organizations from Indiana gathered at the Statehouse to rally for a hate crime law. Rajesh Patnaik said vandals targeted his family’s Indianapolis business in September 2017, marking it with hurtful graffiti. Patnaik said, “Some of the things were like ‘Hindu traitors,’ ‘Satanists live here.'” He added that “we were just shocked that somebody would do that to us.” Patnaik and dozens of people rallied Tuesday morning inside the Statehouse and urged lawmakers to pass a hate crime bill this session. Gurinder Singh, founder and chairman of SikhsPAC USA, said, “Every human being needs economic opportunity, safety and security, dignity and respect.” Indiana is one of five states that doesn’t have a law against crimes motivated by biases, such as sexual orientation, religion or race. Elizabeth Longcore and other advocates at Tuesday’s rally said they feel like 2018 could be the year. Longcore, with the Indiana Statewide Independent Living Council, said “Really, clarify and actually define what is a hate crime because it manifests itself differently toward people with disabilities.” Early last year, the Indiana Family Institute spoke out against a state hate crime proposal, saying the bill would politicize crimes. But, it is legislation that Marion County’s Prosecuting Attorney continues to push for. Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry said, “If it’s vandalism, if it’s battery — no matter what the crime — if it’s motivated by hate, by bias, then what this bill does is allows the court to impose a more severe sentence.” Curry said this is the third year his office has advocated for the law. “For us, we as a state send a countervailing message that we’re not going to tolerate this, that this is unacceptable and we’re going to treat it more severely than we might have otherwise,” Curry said. Curry said supporters have gotten some encouraging signs that this might be the year.

|Indiana inmates to learn computer coding in new programWISH-TV / 9 h. 25 min. ago more|
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Gov. Eric Holcomb announced a new plan Tuesday to teach computer coding to state prisoners. The goal is to keep former inmates out of jail by giving them tools to succeed. The program will launch this spring at the Indiana Women’s Prison. Twenty-four inmates will be in the class but the San Francisco-based nonprofit that runs the course, The Last Mile, hopes to expand in Indiana. Kenyatta Leal was locked up in a California prison when he met his mentor and started The Last Mile. He was released in 2012, earned an internship with a tech. company and is now in a management role. “I knew nothing about the internet,” Leal said. “If I could learn it, they could learn it too. It just takes hard work, dedication and believing in yourself. Believing in the process.” Gov. Eric Holcomb said nearly 40 percent of all Indiana inmates become repeat offenders. “We’re spending hundreds of millions of dollars on our prison system,” Holcomb said. “We could not just be drawing that down but drawing up salaries for people when they leave our prison system for the last time.” Organizers with The Last Mile said the program will cost between $150,000 and $220,000 dollars to start. They said some of the money will come from the state and some from private donations, but they would not break down the exact costs. One co-founder said it will also cost around $5,000 dollars per inmate annually to maintain the program. Inmates don’t have to pay anything. The governor’s office said they don’t know yet exactly how much the program will cost the state and how much will come from private donations. The Last Mile said none of their 41 graduates have gone back to prison.

CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) — The owner of the property where 14-year-old Libby German and 13-year-old Abby Williams went missing has been ordered to home detention. The order comes after 77-year-old Ronald Logan prison sentence was modified to serve at his home with GPS monitoring. He’d been sentenced in connection to a habitual traffic violator charge in April. As part of the sentence, Logan is not to consume alcohol and is prohibited from entering bars. Logan also isn’t allowed to operate a vehicle. Logan is said to have visited a dump site the same day that German and Williams went missing. Logan has never been named an official suspect in the killings of German and Williams. However, his property was searched by the FBI, Indiana State Police and Carroll County Sheriff’s Office.

|Indiana lawmaker calls for annual summit on food desertsWISH-TV / 1 d. 9 h. 38 min. ago more|
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The U.S. Department of Agriculture defines a food desert as a place where at least 500 people live more than one mile from a supermarket or large grocery store. That number bumps up to 10 miles for rural areas. So, do you live in a food desert? You could be living in a food desert and not realize it. There are dozens across Indiana, according to the USDA. St. Vincent de Paul’s Boulevard Place Food Pantry, 4202 Boulevard Place, is probably the closest place Stephanie Stewart can easily get fresh food, including fruits and vegetables, for her family. Stewart, who lives within a food desert, said “They need an Aldi or Save-A-Lot or some type of store that people can get to. Otherwise, the only nearest thing is the pantries.” Stewart and others said the closest grocery store or supermarket was more than 2 miles away. “It’s bad,” Stewart said. “People trying to get to the store can’t get to nearby stores. The nearest ones that we had was the 7-Elevens, and they’re gone.” The USDA’s Food Access Research Atlas on Monday afternoon listed more than 100 food deserts in Indiana. They included Boulevard Place Pantry’s service area. Ed Turissini, a volunteer at the Boulevard Place Food Bank said “Fresh fruit and vegetables are really critical to a lot of the people who come through here.” Republican State Sen. John Ruckelshaus said there is a supply of fresh food to be had in our state. He said it’s the distribution that’s the issue. That’s why he introduced his food access bill, to help shrink food deserts. Ruckelshaus, who lives in Indianapolis, said, “There will be a demand that the lieutenant governor host an annual summit of all the nonprofits, like Gleaner’s Food Bank, like St. Vincent DePaul, who are doing a great job of distributing the food to come together and share best practices on how they can help their areas.” The idea had people inside the food pantry talking Monday morning. Turissini said about the bill from Ruckelshaus, “Oh, I think it’s great! You wind up in some of these areas….You wonder how people survive, especially older people, people without cars, people on limited incomes.” Ruckelshaus said he believes the bill will gain widespread support because he said the bill does not ask for money from the state or the creation of a fund for this.

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) — An Evansville teen died Saturday night after police say a drunk driver hit and killed her when her sled entered a roadway. Davis Collier, a 16-year old junior at Castle High School, was killed while sledding near the Newburgh Lock and Dam Saturday night. Warrick County Dispatch confirmed crews responded to a sledding accident at 10:13 p.m. at the hill. When officers arrived, they found Collier had been struck by a car driven by Galina Witte, 20, of Evansville. It was reported that the teenager had been sledding and was struck when the sled entered the roadway and slid into the path of the oncoming vehicle. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. The Newburgh Police Department along with the Warrick County Sheriff’s Office investigated the accident. Witte was arrested and preliminary charged with Operating While Intoxicated with a Prior Conviction and Operating While Intoxicated Endangering. In January 2017, drivers reported Witte driving erratically on I-64 in Warrick County. Troopers say Witte failed three field sobriety tests. No charges were filed. Then, in October 2017, she was arrested for driving while intoxicated and given probation in December. The investigation is still ongoing and additional charges may be filed. Until further notice, the Newburgh Town Council has closed French Island Trail to traffic along the riverfront between Westervelt Drive and State Street. The Castle High School auditorium was open on Sunday afternoon for students and community members to talk with counselors.

|2 fleeing suspects dead, 2 others hurt in northern Indiana crashWISH-TV / 2 d. 20 h. 14 min. ago more|
WARSAW, Ind. (WANE) – Two people are dead and two others are in serious condition after two theft suspects caused a crash while running from police in Warsaw. It happened just before 9:30 Saturday night. According to Indiana State Police, a trooper saw a vehicle that matched the description of a suspect vehicle from a theft that happened at the Meijer in Warsaw. The officer tried to stop the vehicle. That’s when the suspects drove off heading east on U.S. 30. Police said the suspects ran a red light at the intersection of U.S. 30 and Parker Street and hit three other vehicles. The two people in the suspect vehicle died in the crash. They have since been identified as 19-year-old Jacob Slone and 16-year-old Paige Jefferson. Two people in another vehicle were taken to a hospital in serious condition. No other serious injuries were reported. U.S. 30 was shut down for several hours while investigators reconstructed the crash scene. Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to call 1st Sgt. Kevin Smith at the Indiana State Police Fort Wayne post at (260) 432-8661. The incident is under investigation.

|Lawmakers seek to consolidate about 300 Indiana townshipsWISH-TV / 3 d. 15 h. 6 min. ago more|
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Some Indiana lawmakers are looking to consolidate township government in the state after multiple instances of corruption. The Courier & Press reports that Indiana House Republicans announced a plan early this month to merge about 300 of Indiana’s 1,005 townships over the next five years. The legislators aim to introduce the effort in 2018. The plan would eliminate almost 1,200 elected positions. Reformers have long sought to curb township government because it gives elected officials unusual discretion to spend taxpayer money. An investigation by the newspaper last year found that township trustees have limited oversight and are given enough autonomy to abuse the privilege.

|What’s ahead after the storm: refreezing ice on streetsWISH-TV / 4 d. 5 h. 29 min. ago more|
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The winter storm Friday caused power outages, messy road conditions and school cancellations across the state. WEATHER UPDATE DELAYS AND CLOSINGS TRAFFIC MAP The Indianapolis Department of Public Works had 80 drivers out and about working from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. They have been treating and plowing the snow across the city. But the main concern going into this weekend is the possible ice left behind for the city and many residents. “Well, I’m just glad it’s not arctic out here,” said Tommy, who lives in Indianapolis. Tommy spent Friday evening shoveling snow from this parking lot and sidewalk near South Meridian and East Palmer streets. “I’m actually thinking the faster I get done, the quicker I can get back into where it’s warm, and thanks to this double-wide (shovel) right here I can clear a sidewalk in two to three passes,” he said. He got a phone call Friday to help his church group. “I do volunteer work, and they asked me if I could come over and help them shovel snow and spread salt, and I thought, ‘yeah, well, sure, why not.’ I mean, other than I’d be hiding indoors waiting until this weather is over with,” he said. From shoveling snow to scraping ice to slipping on ice, Ruth Sherlock said she doesn’t think the weather is that bad. “Now ya’ll should have been out here when it was, what, 2 below,” said Sherlock, who lives in Indianapolis. The winter storm system was to move out of the state by Friday night, but the work isn’t over for Indianapolis Department of Public Works. “We know that we laid salt down. We’re going to give it time to work, but, because of that, there’s going to be a chance of refreezing,” said Warren Stokes, who is the department spokesperson. “So, we want to make sure we’re applying salt where necessary and really making sure we’re taking care of that.” Stokes said a new shift was to start at 11 p.m. Friday with dozens of salt trucks working to prevent a mess going into the weekend. “Oh, my goodness. I mean you figure everything’s fine it looks good until you get pass that little inch of that crusty layer of snow and then you realize, ‘oh, a couple inches thick of ice,’ ‘oh, that’s not nice,'” Tommy said. The Indiana State Emergency Operation Center has been activated to Enhanced Level 3, which means the state called in different resources to help monitor and assess the winter storm. The Emergency Opeartions Center is normally at a level four for daily operation.
