Lawrenceburg Now

Investigations have been opened into a number of recent crimes reported by Lawrenceburg residents.

According to reports filed through the Lawrenceburg Police Department, officers made their way to Triple K Avenue on Thursday to investigate a vandalism that caused $600 worth of damage.

They spoke with the owner of Ellison Signs who reported that he had heard noises outside of the shop building and looked out in time to see a red Dodge Durango being driven at a high rate of speed on Clearview Avenue.

He found that the driver had been driving recklessly in the parking lot, leaving skid marks and flinging gravel on his 2012 Kia Optima. The car had numerous chips in the paint, leaving an estimated $600 worth of damage.

Another vandalism was reported on North Mahr Avenue on Friday. There, a Florence, Alabama resident said she had been working at Southeast Carriers from 5:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

When she got ready to leave she discovered that someone had damaged a fender on her 2015 Chevy Mailbu. Reports show that there was a tennis ball-sized dent and scratches that were approximately the size of a screw driver. She said damages would total around $400.

Officers investigated a vandalism at a West Taylor Street home Saturday. The resident said she returned to her house and noticed one of her cats in the curtain. This drew her attention to the fact that her window had been broken. Damages were around $50.

A Hart Avenue resident filed a police report on Thursday, indicating that someone had stolen her son’s neon orange, 16” Mongoose bicycle, valued at $90. She told officers that the bike was stolen from her front yard, beside her front porch.
In another incident police officers spoke with a Columbia couple who reported a shed on Mildred Avenue in Lawrenceburg had been burglarized.

The door knob was damaged with scratch marks on the locking mechanism. They found a butter knife under a table and told officers that they did not remember it being there before. Although everything appeared to have been rummaged through, they could not determine that anything was missing.
