• LARCENY: Shawn K. Haseley, 37, 93 Rainbow Park Way, was charged Monday afternoon with second-degree burglary and petit larceny. A Ransomville Road woman told deputies that Haseley came to her house at 9:53 p.m. and asked if he could have a garbage bag filled with returnable cans that was sitting in a back room of her home. The woman said no and closed the door. Minutes later, she heard someone open the back door and looked out the window to see Haseley walking down the road carrying a white garbage bag full of cans. She called the sheriff’s department, who tried to locate Haseley but were unable to. Haseley was later found at the Porter County Mart attempting to return the cans. Deputies took him to the woman’s house and she identified him, the report said. Haseley told deputies, “I thought I could take the cans. I always take those cans.” The value of the cans is estimated at $5, the report said. Haseley is being held in lieu of $500 bail.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
