• Monday night about 8:28 p.m., LaGrange Police responded to the 200 block of North Dawson Street in reference to a burglary.

Officers arrived and spoke to the male complainant, who stated that unknown person(s) broke into his residence sometime after 5:10 a.m. earlier that morning.

The victim explained that he had just returned home to discover the rear door to his residence had been kicked open.

Police examined the rear door and observed a portion of the door frame on the ground where it had apparently been kicked in to gain entry into the residence.

The victim went through the residence, but could not find anything missing. He stated there were several items on his bed that had been dumped out from some drawers, but nothing appeared to have been taken.

Officers processed the location for fingerprints, but no suspect fingerprints were found.

During a canvass of the area, police spoke to a neighbor who stated that at about 11 a.m., he observed an unknown male gathering pecans in the victim’s yard. The subject was described as a black male wearing a plaid shirt and khaki pants with a white splotchy beard. The subject was estimated to be about 50 years old and to weigh about 200 pounds.

A second neighbor who would have had a good look at the rear door advised they did not see or hear anything.

Later that night, the original victim called 911 and advised that he found some shoes in his yard that were not his and he has never seen before. Police then responded back to the location and observed a pair of blue and orange shoes lying in the middle of a path that leads from the door that was kicked in to the apartment complex near the victim’s residence. The shoes did not appear to have been there for an extended period of time.

The shoes were taken into evidence and this incident remains under investigation.

• Monday afternoon about 2 p.m., LaGrange Police were in the area of Lafayette Parkway when officers observed a silver Chevrolet Tahoe traveling south on Patillo Road.

A random tag check of the vehicle quickly revealed the Tahoe had no valid insurance and a suspended registration, so a traffic stop was initiated as the driver turned into the Racetrack fuel station.

Police then made contact with the driver, Megan Danielle Hendrix, and explained the reason for the stop.

Hendrix told police that the vehicle was not hers and that she was unaware that it did not have any insurance.

Hendrix then provided police with her Georgia driver’s license and officers began to attempt to contact the owner of the vehicle. While doing so, officers determined that Hendrix’s driver’s license had been expired for over two months. Hendrix was then taken into custody for driving unlicensed.

Hendrix, age 28, was arrested and transported to the Troup County Sheriff’s Office where she was booked into the jail charged with Driving without at Valid License and issued a warning for Operating an Unregistered Vehicle.

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