Lawrenceburg Now

Law enforcement officials have been working a number of cases involving burglaries of vehicles in past weeks.

During the weekend a Seventh Street resident reported to Lawrenceburg Police officers that someone had broken into his 2006 Ford F150 truck by breaking a latch on a sliding window. Stolen were binoculars, a range finder, knives, laser sights, deer call, shotgun shells, bandanas, and chewing gum. The items had a combined value of $610, while damages totaled $200. Several of the items were recovered in a separate investigation and returned to the owner.

On Saturday officers spoke with a Goodsprings resident who reported that while he was in town visiting, his wallet was stolen out of his vehicle. The wallet contained a gift card for $120, a food stamp card valued at $250, and $700 cash. Total loss was approximately $1,300.

Officers were recently asked to investigate the burglary of a 2009 Toyota Rav4 on Brink Street. The victim said she noticed that blankets in the back seat had been unfolded and that papers from the glove compartment had been thrown around inside. A wallet containing $20 was missing along with sunglasses and medications. Loss totaled $80.

The burglary of a vehicle on Alex Drive resulted in a loss of $400 recently. The victim reported that someone had broken into his vehicle and stole a Browning 1910 semi-automatic, .380 handgun out of the glove box.

Investigators were supplied with security video in another recent case that occurred at a Waterloo Street home. The resident said he heard his dogs barking around 10:00 p.m. and looked outside, noticing a truck that was parked in a nearby parking lot had its headlights shining into the back yard.

Once he noticed the resident, the driver fled from the scene.The victim later found that someone had stolen a Garmin GPS system and loose change out of his 2004 Chevy Tahoe, resulting in a loss of $130. He reviewed his outside security camera footage and was able to provide officers with a description of both the suspect and his vehicle.

Each of the cases remains under investigation. Anyone with information about these or any other crimes is asked to contact the police department at 931-762-2276.
