Police & Sheriff’s Reports 10-29-2018

  • Thursday morning about 10:41 a.m., officers took a walk-in report at the LaGrange Police Department in reference to a forgery.

Officers made contact with the complainant, who stated that she was notified by Suntrust Bank she had a check bounce. The complainant advised that she knew she had money in her account, so she checked the account and discovered that $73,000 had been taken out of her accounts without her permission.

The victim stated she then immediately responded to the bank and closed her account.

The victim advised that statements from her bank showed several fraudulent withdrawals from her accounts starting on October 4 through Thursday.

This incident is still under investigation.

  • Thursday morning about 11:50 a.m., LaGrange Police responded to a door being open at a closed business on Whitesville Road.

Officers arrived and met with the property owner, who stated that he saw the pad lock to the door had been cut off. The complainant advised that he had not gone inside since he does not own the business, but he does own the property.

Police entered and cleared the business, The Tire Man, but were unable to determine if anything was missing.

The owner of the business later arrived and initially thought noting was missing, but some tires had been moved around. The owner later noticed that some wheels and tires had been taken off his Monte Carlo, valued at $600.

The tires and wheels were last seen on the vehicle on October 21.

This incident is still under investigation.

  • Early Thursday morning about 12:50 a.m., LaGrange Police observed a blue Chevrolet Impala with an inoperable tag light traveling east on Lafayette Parkway near Hoffman Drive.

Officers initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle near the I-85 onramp and made contact with the driver, later identified as Le’a Unterious Damar Robinson.

Robinson advised police that he did not have his license on his person. He then claimed to be “Kevin Langford” and even wrote that name down along with a false date of birth on a notepad.

Officers then attempted to verify the information provided through police records and noticed that it did not match Robinson at all, so he was detained in handcuffs.

Robinson initially maintained that he was Kevin Langford, but when officers advised that they would utilize a Rapid ID fingerprint scanner find out who he really was, he finally provided his real name and date of birth.

Police then checked Robinson through the Georgia Crime Information Center and learned that his license was revoked through the State of Georgia and he had been declared a Habitual Violator.

As a result, Robinson, age 43, was arrested and transported to the Troup County Sheriff’s Office where he was booked into the jail charged with Felony Driving while License Suspended, Habitual Violator Offense, and Giving a False Name.

Robinson is currently being held at the Troup County Jail where he was denied bond.
