Police & Sheriff’s Reports 10-30-2020

Tuesday evening, about 6:55 p.m., LaGrange Police responded to the 1800 block of Mooty Bridge Road in reference to a burglary of an occupied residence.

Officers arrived and made contact with the complainant, who stated he and his six-year-old son were home all day when he noticed from inside the house that his screen door to the screened-in porch had been tampered with.

The complainant then further checked the door and noticed the screen had been forced through and a cable used to secure the door handle from the inside had been cut or broken. He then noticed that his weed eater had been moved from the corner along with other items and that a mess was left behind.

The victim stated he then searched through his things and discovered other items were missing including an ammunition press kit and a ratchet set.

The victim stated he believes the offender(s) did not take anything else because they must not have known he was home when they entered. He stated he believes the offender(s) saw his son and realized the house was not vacant. He thinks they took the few items they could at the time in a hurry and ran through the field behind his house.

This incident is still under investigation.

Early Tuesday morning, about 2:48 a.m., LaGrange Police responded to the Comfort Inn on Lafayette Parkway in reference to a stolen vehicle.

Officers arrived and made contact with the complainant, who stated that his friend, who he only knows as “CC”, had been staying with him in his room and had stolen his white 2016 Kia Optima.

The complainant advised that the subject had never been allowed to use his car and that he had not given her permission to drive it.

The vehicle was valued at about $4,000.

The complainant explained that just prior to the theft the suspect had been taking a shower, and once she got out, she began accusing him of taking her cell phone. He stated that he was laying on the bed when she grabbed his car keys off of the dresser and told him she was going to check for something.

The victim stated that he then put some clothes on and walked down to the parking lot, where he saw “CC” was backing out of the parking space and leaving the location in his vehicle.

The victim advised that he lost sight of the vehicle as it was traveling east on Lafayette Parkway.

Police say they attempted to collect information on “CC” from the victim, but he was not very forthcoming. He described her as a 32-year-old white female.

This incident is still under investigation.
