Late Saturday night, about 12:49 a.m., LaGrange Police responded to Brittany Place Apartments on Hogansville Road in reference to reports of a case of entering auto.
Police received reports from a 911 caller who observed two young males pulling on car door handles in the parking lot and leaving in a vehicle.
While en route, officers passed a car on Hogansville Road matching the description provided, so they began following the vehicle while additional officers made contact with the complainant.
Police then spoke with the complainant, who stated that he was sitting on his balcony when he observed two young black males pulling on the door handles of vehicles that were parked in the parking lot near the 600 building.
The complainant stated he saw the suspects pulling on the door handles of a blue Volkswagon and a white BMW. He saw the interior dome light activate in the Volkswagon. They then moved onto the BMW, at which point he yelled at them and they ran east through the complex towards the 500 building and got into a red-colored vehicle.
Police checked the vehicles in the area, and the only one that appeared to have been entered was the Volkswagon, which was unlocked and the glove box open. The victim later confirmed that her vehicle had been rummaged through, but nothing appeared to be missing.
As a result of the investigation, police identified and charged a 15-year-old juvenile believed to be involved with the incident.
The juvenile was charged with felony entering auto.
