Robbery Suspect Sought

On March 15, 2015, at approximately 7:30 A.M,. an unknown subject robbed the Gander Mountain store located at 5348 S. Westnedge.   The suspect displayed a handgun and forced the manager to turn over an unknown amount of money.  The suspect sprayed the manager with pepper spray during the incident, which somewhat incapacitated the manager.  After the suspect took the money the suspect left the area in an unknown direction. 

The Portage Department of Public Safety is looking for assistance in helping identify the suspect.  A phot of the suspect is attached.  Gander Mountain is also offering up to a $2000.00 reward for information that may assist in identifying the suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Portage Department of Public Safety at 329-4567 or Silent Observer at 343-2100.  Tips can also be submitted online through this page by clicking on the "Give a tip" button.




Silent Observer encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and lack of interest.

Silent Observer provides a telephone number and web tip page  to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information helpful to law enforcement agencies in their crime-fighting efforts.   In addition, Silent Observer can receive  text messages which enables Silent Observer and the tipster to communicate back and forth anonymously.

Callers can remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward if the information given leads to an arrest and conviction, or grand jury indictment, of a felony offender.

Silent Observer relies on volunteer Directors and tax deductible contributions from the public in order to operate the administration of the program.
