Portage teen
sentenced for
making threats

A Portage man who threatened a man, stating he was in a gang, then threatened a guard while in Porter County Jail, will serve less than a year in jail.

Tevin Sevilles Carlisle, 19, on Friday received a two-year sentence with time served of seven months and 18 days in Porter County Jail and the rest on probation.

On March 3, Carlisle threatened another man with a knife and told the man he was in the Insane King Cobras while another man threatened the man with a wrench and a third man was involved.

He was charged with two Class D felonies, intimidation and criminal gang activity.

On June 11, he threatened a guard and was charged with Class D felony intimidation.

He pleaded to both counts of intimidation.

Woman uses glue to smuggle drugs

A Valparaiso woman who tried to smuggle drugs into Porter County Jail through the glue in a homemade card received a seven-year prison sentence Friday.

Maria Guadalupe Soliz, 30, had earlier pleaded guilty to Class C felony attempted trafficking with an inmate, which gained her a five-year prison sentence, and to violations of two different probation statuses, which gained her the other two years incarceration.

Jailers became suspicious when a handwritten note to an inmate included the phrase “GLUE on the glitter card” and a smiley face.

A laboratory determined that the crushed substance found in the glue was Vicodin.
