Portage police chase leads to Indiana and large marijuana bust
PORTAGE, Mich. — A police chase that started in Portage and wound through Michigan and Indiana ended with the discovery of a large marijuana growing operation and four arrests.
Portage Department of Public Safety Sgt. Kevin Gleesing told FOX 17 NEWS that on Wednesday officers responded to reports of a woman driving through a yard on Portage Road on the city’s south side. They followed the woman to Vicksburg.
Other police agencies then took over the chase, which eventually saw the woman drive into Indiana where her vehicle was stopped by the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Office with spike strips and she was taken into custody. The woman was identified as 46-year-old Pamela Jean Visser-Stock.
Meanwhile, police went to the residence where the vehicle was registered in Vicksburg and found a large marijuana growing operation. They also arrested three people there.
Visser-Stock was arrested and is being held in the Elkhart County Jail in Elkhart, Ind.
