Police Reports 5-31-2020

Thursday evening about 5:30 p.m., LaGrange Police responded to Greenville Street in reference to a hit and run accident.

Police arrived and made contact with the complainant, who stated that she had just been shopping with her mother at the Walmart on New Franklin Road. She stated that they left the parking lot without noticing any damage on her vehicle, but when they returned home, she discovered a large dent on the rear passenger door.

Officers examined the vehicle and confirmed a large dent in lower half of the rear passenger door and what appeared to be white paint transfer. The victim’s vehicle, a 2016 gray Nissan Rogue, showed no other damage.

Police are in the process of attempting to see if Walmart security video may have captured the incident.

This incident is still under investigation.

Thursday morning about 9:05 a.m., LaGrange Police responded to Lafayette Mini Storage on Lafayette Parkway in reference to a burglary.

Police arrived and met with the complainant, who stated that he rents a few storage units at the location. He stated that was on the backside of the building earlier in the morning when he noticed a stack of vanity mirrors, still in the box, and two storage lifts, still in the box, lying on the ground.

The complainant stated that he moved the items to the storage unit that he rents until officers arrived. He then walked police around to the rear of the building, where tire tracks were seen in the mud coming toward the storage units.

Officers also noticed that the bottom bolts on the sheet-metal wall had been taken out and left on the ground. Police believe that the unidentified suspect(s) took the bolts off in order to pull the sheet metal back and enter the unit.

Police were unable to contact the owner of the unit.

Officers later spoke to the manager of the location, who stated the front gate is normally locked, but they have recently left the gate open, due to COVID-19.

This incident is still under investigation.
