Burglars target three Lawrenceburg businesses Thursday morning
Police officers were dispatched to three Lawrenceburg businesses Thursday morning after employees discovered they had been targeted by burglars.
Officers with the Lawrenceburg Police Department answered a call to Performance Feed at 122 Fourth Street, at around 3:40 a.m. Employees reported that it appeared someone had gained entry to the property through a grain chute, then prowled through various vehicles looking for valuables. They said the only thing that appeared to be missing was a pair of leather work gloves valued at $25.
Officers were summoned to Challenger Electric, located at 818 North Military Avenue, at 7:20 a.m. An employee reported he had come in to open up for the day and discovered pry marks on a rear roll-up door. He said the perpetrator had broken the light above the door, as well. Total damages were estimated to be $800.
Just five minutes later officers answered a call to Music Tripp at 909 North Locust Avenue. There, employees reported arriving to find that the front door glass had been busted. Officers report that the person responsible had rummaged through cabinets, and that money drawers had been removed and laid on the floor. A crowbar, that employees said must have been left by the burglar, was found lying on the floor, as well.
Officers found a glove lying in the field behind the building, adjacent to the railroad tracks. They followed tracks up the embankment and found the matching glove lying on the tracks. There, they also found check receipts taken from the business that had been discarded.
The cases currently remain under investigation through the police department’s Criminal Investigation Division Anyone who has information that might assist in the investigation is encouraged to contact the department at 931-762-2276.
