On January 4th, 2023 at 11:14 P.M. is when the LaPorte County E-911 Regional Dispatch Center was notified of a glass breakage burglar alarm from Polo Ralph Lauren located at 1400 Lighthouse Place in the Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets. Several Michigan City Police Department Officers from Uniform Patrol Shift 3 quickly responded to the scene and noticed the glass in one of the front doors to this store was shattered. Officers then discovered articles of merchandise from Polo Ralph Lauren and Adidas in the parking lot of Lighthouse Place Premium Outlet Mall.
Some officers recovered the merchandise while others searched the immediate area for any suspect(s). 19-yearold Pendleton, Indiana resident Q’Marion Fisher and a 17-year-old juvenile were identified by officers on the west side of Lighthouse Place Premium Outlet Mall. Fisher and the juvenile fled the area on foot when confronted by officers but were eventually apprehended. A third unidentified suspect fled the area on foot and was not located by responding officers.
Officers checked the remaining stores within Lighthouse Place Premium Outlet Mall and discovered that Adidas (1205 Lighthouse Place) was also burglarized. Fisher and the juvenile were arrested after officers discovered evidence from both stores were in their possession. Both suspects were arrested for 2 counts of Burglary (Level 5 Felony), 2 counts of Participation in Criminal Organization (Level 6 Felony) and Resisting Law Enforcement (A-Misdemeanor).
The juvenile was transported to the LaPorte County Juvenile ervices Center while Fisher was transported to the LaPorte County Jail. The juvenile’s identity is being withheld due to their age. Fisher was issued a $15,005.00 cash only bond and his initial court appearance is scheduled for January 10th, 2023 at 8:30 AM in LaPorte County Superior Court One. A photo of Fisher is attached to this press release courtesy of the LaPorte County Jail.
