Police & Sheriff’s Reports 11-18-2020
Early Wednesday morning, about 1:55 a.m., LaGrange Police responded to Lee’s Crossing Apartments on Old Airport Road in reference to a case of Entering Auto.
Officers arrived and made contact with the victim, who stated unknown person(s) made entry into her locked vehicle and stole her fuse, valued at about $10.
The victim stated she heard the alarm going off on her white 2002 Chevy Suburban around 1:40 a.m. She stated it took her some time to get her shoes on to go out and turn the alarm off, at which time she noticed her driver side door was not closed all the way.
The victim stated that within minutes of the activated alarm, unknown person(s) lifted the hood and took the fuse out of the fuse box.
There were no signs of forced entry into the vehicle due to her driver window already being broken.
The victim stated she had a plastic wrap covering the window, but due to driving, the plastic wrap had already gotten damaged leaving a hole.
The victim stated she has nothing valuable in the vehicle because of how easy it is to get inside with the window broken.
Officers processed the vehicle for fingerprints, but did not attempt to canvass the area for potential witnesses, due to the late hour of the report.
This incident is still under investigation.
Tuesday night about 7:48 p.m., LaGrange Police responded to the S-Curve Store of South Greenwood Street in reference to a stolen vehicle.
Officers arrived and met with the victim, who stated his grey four-door 2015 Kia Forte had been stolen when he went into the store.
The victim explained that he went to the gas station to get orange juice for his daughter, but left the vehicle running because he was going to only be a few minutes. He stated that he did not think his vehicle would be stolen because he did not see anyone else at the store.
Security video later revealed that three black males came around from the rear of the store, got into the vehicle, and drove away headed north on South Greenwood Street toward Vernon Road.
The driver of the vehicle was seen wearing a blue jacket and a black hat. The front seat passenger was wearing a red hoodie with a black jacket over it. No description was provided for the other passenger.
The victim advised that the vehicle was valued at $6,000.
A be-on-the-lookout warning was issued for the vehicle, and this incident remains under investigation.
