Police & Sheriff’s Reports 09-28-2018

Early Tuesday morning about 2:48 a.m., LaGrange Police responded to Barnard Avenue in reference to a burglary.

Officers arrived and made contact with the complainant, who stated he just arrived home from work and tried to remotely open the garage door. The garage door would not open, and he noticed it was slightly cracked open. He then tried to manually open the garage door, at which point he discovered it was off track.

The complainant stated he then began checking around his residence and confirmed that all the doors and windows were still locked and secured.

Upon coming back into the garage, he realized his utility trailer with all of his lawn equipment was missing, along with two sets of rims and tools.

The victim stated he then spoke to his girlfriend via telephone, and she stated the trailer was still in the garage when she left around 10 p.m. and was able to close the garage remotely as she left.

The complainant told police that about two weeks earlier, four male juveniles had  came up to him in his garage and asked if they could cut his grass and asked about one of his lawn mowers that did not work. The juveniles then began looking around his garage and noticed that he had a weight set and asked if they could work out, but he told them no. One of the males reportedly noticed the rims that were on the trailer and made a comment about them.

Officers canvassed the area for any possible witnesses, but had negative contact.

This incident is still under investigation.

Monday evening about 5:50 p.m., officers took a walk-in report at the LaGrange Police Department in reference to forgery.

Officers spoke to the complainant, who stated she received an email from her mother. It contained a copy of an email from her bank and a copy of a check.

The complainant advised that she received a phone call from her bank, BB&T, and they informed her that a fraudulent charge may have occurred on her bank account. She later received an email confirming fraud on the account.

The complainant supplied police with a copy of the check made out to a female by the name, Destiny Gates, and was endorsed on the back by the same name. The check was presented to a Wells Fargo Bank at an unknown location in the amount of $2,264.62.

The check was not approved, and the victim did not lose any funds from her checking account.

The victim stated she does not know anyone by the name Destiny Gates, nor does she have checks in the number range of the fraudulent check.

This incident is still under investigation.
