What's Happening at The Porter County Sheriff's Department


Escape Artist Anthony Martin at PCSP

On Saturday June 13th, world renown escape artist Anthony Martin broke out of the Porter County Jail. (The old one that is now the Porter County Museum.)

As a warm up, Tony first escaped from the cell in the Sheriff’s Department lobby after having been locked inside by Sheriff Lain. After his escape from 3 cellblock doors at the museum, Tony was photographed holding the “Dillinger” Thompson stolen by the criminal when he escaped jail in 1934.
