• Saturday morning about 10:47 a.m., officers took a walk-in report at the La-Grange Police Department in reference to an Entering Auto.

Officers spoke with the victim, who stated his Ford F-150 was illegally entered while it was parked unlocked at his residence on Burke Street sometime after 10:30 p.m. the previous night.

The victim stated he leaves the doors unlocked on the truck because he doesn’t want someone breaking the glass out to get inside.

This incident is still under investigation.

• Sunday afternoon about 4 p.m., LaGrange Police were at the Walmart on New Franklin Road in reference to a separate issue when officers were advised that a shoplifter was in the store.

The store’s Loss Prevention Officer advised police that she had been working a case that occurred earlier in the morning at about 7:25 a.m. She stated she was asked by a manager to review video in reference to an associate who observed a pair of boots ringing up for $1.68 at the self check out.

The Loss Prevention Officer advised she began reviewing video and observed a female, later identified as Alexis Moon, selecting a shirt valued at $1.68 and a pair of pants valued at $7.78. The subject then appeared to rip a tag off the shirt, valued at $1.68, and proceeds to select a pair of Brahma boots, valued at $70.

Moon then relocated to self check out, where she purchased the shirt and used the tag she ripped off the $1.68 shirt to “under-ring” the pants and boots.

Employees advised police that Moon had came back in the store and was again selecting boots. Loss Prevention Employees continued to watch Moon throughout the store, but she abruptly left the shopping cart in the store and began walking out as if she figured out she was being watched.

Store employees then attempted to stop Moon as she exited the grocery side of the store, but she continued to walk refusing to stop. Police were then alerted of this and made contact with Moon as she was entering her vehicle.

As police approached the vehicle, Moon got out of the vehicle and began walking towards officers, at which point she was told to place her hands behind her back. She then refused to comply. Officers asked again and she refused, asking why. Police then advised Moon she was being detained in reference to a shoplifting incident. She then again refused, but eventually complied when given an ultimatum to do so.

Moon was escorted back to the Loss Prevention Office, where employees supplied her with documents from Walmart Asset Protection. Moon was then searched to arrest on camera and secured in the rear of a patrol vehicle. After Moon was secured in the vehicle, officers asked if her vehicle was secure. She stated no and immediately stated there were other boots in her vehicle, but she had paid for those. She stated she had the receipts and they would be in her car.

Moon then gave consent to search her vehicle for those receipts. Officers searched the vehicle for the related receipts, but were unable to find any with boots. Police did however find two receipts with the amounts of $1.68 and the same type clothing, which matched the events described by Walmart employees.

Four boxes of boots were located in the vehicle as well, but one box was empty. The dates and times of these receipts are currently being investigated by Walmart Asset Protection. Due to the fact that receipts were not located for the boots and it’s the same boots she is observed shoplifting from Walmart, officers took possession of the boots found in her vehicle and placed those into evidence.

While searching Moon’s vehicle, officers noticed she had a Concealed Carry Permit in her purse. When asked if there was a gun in the vehicle, Moon stated there was and advised it was in the glove box. Police then found the gun in the glove box and had Troup County 911 run the firearm to ensure it was not stolen.

Due to Moon having no way of securing the vehicle as the door locks were inoperable, officers took possession of the firearm and placed it into Property and Evidence so she could return and retrieve the firearm when able. Police were also able to determine Moon had no criminal history for Shoplifting.

As a result, Moon, age 23, was arrested and transported to the Troup County Sheriff’s Office where she was booked into the jail and charged with Theft by Shoplifting – Less than $500.

Moon was later released from the Troup County Jail on bond.
