Within the last week the Griffith Police Department arrested 31 year old Antione T Gaines of Gary Indiana for a warrant arrest and 24 year old Jay Shawn Phippips III from Griffith Indiana for Driving While Suspended on two separate instances. The Griffith Police Department also arrested 23 year old Robert Timothy Donya Horton of Gary Indiana for Possession of Marijuana. These arrests stem from a cooperation with Officers of the Griffith, Highland and Munster Indiana Police Departments using the Violence Reduction Initiative Task Force Grant. The Violence Reduction Grant, which was obtained by the Highland Police Department, has allowed conspicuously increased police presence throughout the three communities. The result of these actions has resulted in traffic and investigative stops netting these arrests and numerous traffic violations within the Town of Griffith and will continue through the summer at various times and locations.
