Police & Sheriff’s Reports 5-20-2020

Early Monday morning, about 12:40 a.m., LaGrange Police notified of a fight in progress inside a residence on Harwell Avenue.

Upon arrival at the location, police observed that Odis Lamont Harris had initiated a fight with subjects inside the residence. Multiple subjects told Harris that he needed to leave and held him back to prevent a fight.

Officers then ordered Harris to step outside, but he refused. Harris then had to be escorted outside under the arms because he did not want to leave the location.

Police say that once outside, Harris kept trying to go back into the house. Harris was given several additional commands by police and his mother to leave the location and go home, but he continued to refuse. Police even told Harris they would help walk him home, but he did not relent.

Harris then sat down and stated he was not going home and that he was going to stay at the location where he had just provoked a fight.

Police note that Harris was extremely intoxicated and could barely walk. He was then escorted off the ground and taken into custody.

As a result, Harris, age 30, was arrested and transported to the Troup County Jail, where he was charged with Disorderly Conduct for provoking and engaging in a fight.

Friday afternoon, about 4:47 p.m., LaGrange Police responded to Timothy Street in reference to reports of Identity Theft.

Police spoke with the complainant, who stated she received an email from Khols stating a card had been used to purchase item(s) in her name.

The complainant stated she did not recognize the card, but Khols would not give her the card information, aside from the last four digits on the card, which did not match the numbers on her card.

The victim advised that the purchase was for $262.42, to be sent to Hephzibah, GA. The purchase was also billed to an address in Texas.

This incident is still under investigation.

Saturday morning, about 11:12 a.m., LaGrange Police responded to Northwoods Drive near North Barnard Avenue in reference to a motor-vehicle collision and possible hit and run.

Police arrived and spoke to the complainant, who stated he was traveling on Northwoods Drive, toward Bailey’s Way, and just merging from North Barnard Avenue, when a silver vehicle traveling the opposite direction crashed into his vehicle.

The complainant’s vehicle was observed to have disabling damage to the left frontend.

The complainant stated that a female exited the silver vehicle and examined the damage and asked him to meet her at her house because she didn’t have license and she would pay him for the damage. She then stated “I get paid Wednesday” and the complainant responded that he stated he couldn’t do that because he borrowed the vehicle and it was inoperable due to the crash.

The female turned her vehicle around and proceeded to drive away.

The complainant stated he recognized the suspect and even showed police her Facebook page, saying he was 100 percent sure it was her and had no doubt.

Officers attempted to locate the subject and the suspect vehicle to no avail.

Police say that warrants will be issued for Leaving the Scene of an Accident, Driving while License Suspended, and Failure to Maintain Lane.
