Police & Sheriff’s Reports 02-12-2021

Wednesday morning, about 7:51 a.m., officers took a report at the LaGrange Police Department in reference to fraud.

Officers spoke to the complainant, who stated that around 7:19 a.m. she received a notification on her phone from Cash App indicating that a transaction had been made on her debit card.

The victim stated that the card was used in the amount of $100 to the City of LaGrange Utilities, which she stated she did not authorize.

The victim stated that no one else uses the card or knows her card number.

Police then spoke with a customer service representative at the utilities office, who advised that the office does not open until 8 a.m., so the transaction was likely made online through the website.

This incident is still under investigation.

Tuesday night, about 8:21 p.m., LaGrange Police responded to the 900 block of Georgia Avenue in reference to a burglary.

Officers arrived and spoke to the complainant, who stated she left her residence earlier in the morning around 7:35 a.m. and had just returned home.

The victim explained that when she arrived home, she noticed that a bottle of lighter fluid that was previously sitting on top of her grill near the back door was now sitting on the ground. She then noticed that the blinds on the window near the back door were also messed up.

After entering the residence, the victim noticed that her kitchen cabinets were open, so she walked back outside and called 911. Police then cleared the residence to ensure no one was inside.

The victim later noticed that the dresser drawers throughout the bedrooms were rummaged through and discovered that her 9mm Taurus handgun, valued at $249.95, was missing from a drawer.

The victim checked throughout the residence, but did not find anything else missing.

The victim pointed out that her refrigerator had been moved and the blinds were messed up. She stated she did not remember if the window had been locked but that when she checked, it was unlocked. The victim advised that she locked the back door before leaving the residence and that it was still locked when she returned home.

While police were processing the scene, officers noticed that the grill that was under the window near the back door had footprints on the lid and was dented as if someone stood on the grill to gain access to the residence through the window.

Police canvassed the area for potential witnesses, but no one reported seeing or hearing anything unusual.

This incident is still under investigation.
