Lawrenceburg Now
Lawrence County Sheriff’s deputies have been dispatched to investigate a number of crimes in the past few days, all of which remain under investigation.
In one incident, deputies spoke with a resident of Highway 43 North who said burglars targeted her house while she was out of town. She said she returned to find her belongings strewn throughout the home. Playstation 2 and 3 game systems were stolen along with several games for each system.

Also missing was a TV, DVD player, and a BB pistol. The back door had been forced open and was left open when the perpetrators left. There was around $40 worth of damage to the door. The items stolen had a total value of approximately $2,750.
Deputies responded to a burglary at a Blooming Grove Road home Monday where someone had stolen a fifty inch TV, a knife collection and pain medication. The items were valued at $750. The crime occurred when the resident left his home briefly.
A theft of a 2004 Polaris four-wheeler is currently being investigated. The four-wheeler was stolen from a home on Cherokee Hill Drive in Loretto. Deputies, along with Loretto officers, found that someone had pried open the garage door in order to gain access to the four-wheeler.

Several of the victim’s belongings had been smashed, as well. Deputies did obtain warrants against the victim’s brother for charges of theft over $1,000 and burglary.
In another incident, a resident reported his truck had been vandalized while it was parked at a friend’s home on Community Road. A hole had been drilled in the gas tank and a gas line had been cut, as well. The victim estimated the truck had sustained $3,000 worth of damage.
A Lexington, Alabama woman was issued a citation for simple possession of marijuana last week when she attempted to enter the Lawrence County Courthouse with five marijuana cigarettes on her person.

The items were found during a routine search. Sandra Dianne Freeman, age 50, was cited on charges of simple possession of marijuana. She is required to answer the charge in Lawrence County General Sessions Court on September 4.
