Police officers asked to investigate crimes

Lawrenceburg Now
Officers with the Lawrenceburg Police Department have been asked to investigate a number of crimes that occurred inside the city within the past few days.
Officers were dispatched to homes on First Street and Sixth Street Saturday night. At the First Street a man reported that someone had stolen his wallet while he was at a swimming hole earlier that week.

He said he had ordered a replacement phone, but when he returned to his home at around 10:30 p.m. Saturday, he found the empty FedEx box sitting on his front porch. The victim reported a loss of around $900.
The owner of the Sixth Street residence filed a complaint, indicating that her tenants had taken some of her belongings when they moved out, and that they had damaged the floor.

Reports show that some of the floor tiles had been damaged; the type of damage that might occur when furniture is moved. The items that were stolen included two end tables, two chairs, and a chandelier. Loss in that case was said to be around $425.
On Friday, officers answered a call to Goodhope Road. There, the resident said someone had destroyed one of her television sets and stolen $625 in cash and her laptop. She told officers that the crimes occurred while she was out of town and had a relative staying with her kids. Loss totaled around $1,750.
In another Friday incident officers responded to Clearview Avenue where the owner reported a burglary. A bedroom window had reportedly been pried open in order to gain entry. Several items of clothing were stolen as well as a purse, jewelry and prescription medicines. Total loss in the case was estimated to be $700.
