Officers arrived and spoke with the complainants, who stated they were in town for business.

The first complainant stated he had just came out to his truck to retrieve his laptop computer, when he discovered his laptop as well as the other male’s laptop computer were missing from the back seat.

Both complainants had already searched the truck and apartment, but could not locate the missing laptops.

The owner of the truck stated that as he was checking his vehicle, he noticed the piece around the keyless entry pad on the driver side door had been cracked and appeared as if it had been popped out. The vehicle had been locked while it was parked at the location.

The complainants stated they left work at about 5:15 p.m. and arrived at the apartment, where they remained until about 6 p.m. and left to go out to eat. They discovered the laptops were missing after they returned at about 8:30 p.m.

The subjects stated they went to eat at Longhorn Steakhouse on LaFayette Parkway and specifically remember seeing the laptops on the way to the restaurant, but they did not check after they left the location.

The truck was reportedly locked as they were eating.

The computers were described as black 15 inch HP brand laptops, valued at $1,200 each. There were several additional pieces of computer equipment with the laptops, valued at $140.

The damage to the keyless entry pad is estimated at $120.

• Friday morning about 10:44 a.m., LaGrange Police responded to Mountville Mills on South Davis Road in reference to counterfeit checks.

Officers arrived and met with management, who stated that the company has a procedure in place at the bank that if anything looks different about a check, they are to decline it and contact the mill.

The bank recently informed the mill that they received two separate checks, one from a female in the amount of amount of $14,972.38 and a second for $18,935.46 that was made out to a male.

The bank declined the checks because they had real check numbers that had already been used about a week earlier.

This incident is still under investigation.
