Lake County Old Sheriff's House and Jail Foundation Visitors

Sheriff David Lain and Lake County Sheriff Roy Dominguez

 

 

On March 24, 2009 Sheriff Lain met with 3 representatives of the Old Sheriff’s House and Jail Foundation from Crown Point, along with Lake County Sheriff Roy Dominguez to talk of history and to find ways to help preserve the old jail in Crown Point. The two Sheriffs committed to using their respective departments’ Thompson sub machineguns in a way that will help bring money to the Foundation. (NOT as John Dilinger used them when he stole them during his breakout in 1934. No banks will be robbed in this effort.)

Mr. Hathaway, who joined the Lake Co. Sheriffs’ Dept. in 1949 and became the first Warden of the new jail when it opened was also kind enough to date several of the badges from his old department that are in Sheriff Lain’s collection.
