AUBURN - The Indiana State Police of the Fort Wayne Post are seeking the public's assistance to identify the suspect(s) responsible for vandalizing five patrol cars.
A press release from the Indiana State Police states on Saturday, February 5, 2024, shortly after 8:00pm, five state troopers working a drug interdiction patrol on I-69 in Dekalb County had stopped for an evening meal at Culver's restaurant in Auburn.
The restaurant is located immediately east of the I-69 and State Road 8 interchange in Auburn.
While the troopers were inside the restaurant all five of their patrol cars sustained extensive damage from being, "keyed".
Repair costs for the damaged patrol cars is estimated at over $3000.00, an expenditure which unfortunately falls back on Hoosier taxpayers.
Detectives are gathering video evidence from surrounding businesses and working diligently to develop a suspect in this investigation.
Anyone in the area of Culver's restaurant in Auburn last Saturday evening that may have observed similar suspicious activity is encouraged to call the Indiana State Police Fort Wayne Post at 432-8661.
Any information provided to detectives as well as caller identity may remain anonymous.
