ROBBERIES: City amplifies patrol to prevent crime

December 7, 2012

COLUMBIA CITY — In light of Fort Wayne’s weekly bank robberies, Columbia City’s Police Department is taking a proactive approach to preventing crime.

The CCPD has ramped up its patrol for local banks in an effort to prevent robbers from coming to Columbia City from Fort Wayne.
Another heist happened on Fort Wayne’s southwest side at a Chase Bank on Lower Huntington Road Thursday afternoon.

CCPD Chief Tim Longenbaugh said the department has stepped up its patrol, especially in the morning as employees are coming to work, but also throughout the day.
Columbia City’s last bank robbery was in July of 2008 at Lake City Bank.
