Police Reports–8-31-2018

Tuesday night about 8:15 p.m., LaGrange Police responded to Hadaway Court in reference to a Burglary.

Officers arrived and spoke with the complainant, who stated when he arrived at home he noticed that his 65 inch Samsung television, valued at $600, and a Play Station 4 video game system, valued at $1,000 were missing.

The victim stated he and his wife left their residence around 5 a.m. and arrived at home at about 6 p.m. Both missing items were reportedly on a table in the living room.

The victim stated that he left the back door unlocked and that is possibly how the suspect gained entry. He stated he also noticed a small crack on the back door that was not there before the theft.

All of the drawers in the victim’s bedroom were opened and rummaged through, but nothing else appeared to have been taken.

The victim stated he went in and out of the back door before police arrived, so officers did not check for fingerprints.

Officers canvassed the area for any potential witnesses, but no one reported seeing anything or hearing anything suspicious.

This incident is still under investigation.

Tuesday afternoon about 12:15 p.m., LaGrange Police responded to North Cary Street in reference to a wanted subject.

Officers arrived and made contact with the wanted subject, Raymond Parker, who had an active felony Probation Violation warrant issued for his arrest.

While inside of Parker’s apartment, officers observed an odor of marijuana. Parker also was confirmed to have a Fourth Amendment waiver on file through Superior Court, so officers conducted a search of his room.

During this search, police located an ashtray that contained a mostly consumed marijuana cigarette.  Police also found a cigarillo pack in a drawer near the ashtray that contained more suspected marijuana.

Officers believe he was lying on a makeshift bed in the floor and smoking marijuana prior to police arrival.

Parker later admitted to his wife that he had been caught smoking marijuana and that he claimed it so she would not face any repercussions.

Parker, age 32, was arrested and transported to the Troup County Sheriff’s Office where he was booked into the jail charged with Possession of Marijuana – Less than $500.
