December 21, 2017-Hammond Police Chief John Dought is crediting hard work and new technology with capturing a serious violent criminal. According to a statement, Police identified a suspect in the armed robberies and utilized the “blue net” license plate reader system to narrow the search for that subject. The suspect has been identified as 25-year-old Jordan Ravesloot of Highland. He is facing two counts of Robbery and one count of Attempted Robbery from the Hammond crimes. Police say he robbed a KFC, Subway and Burger King and that he displayed a weapon or implied he had a weapon at each location. Detective Stephen Guernsey stated “I’m confident we would have identified the suspect through a standard investigation . . . but using the license plate reader cut my investigation time in half.”

“We are so proud of our detectives and the hard work they put in every day.” said Hammond Police Chief John Doughty. “They continually merge good investigation skills with the latest technology and remove criminals from our streets making Hammond a safer place to live.”

All criminal defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law. A criminal charge is not evidence of guilt.
