Car damaged

A man called LaGrange police about 3:30 p.m. Monday to report someone had thrown a brick through his Jeep’s window outside his home in the 500 block of Milam Street.

The victim told officers the incident happened two weeks ago and he already removed the brick from the car, the police report stated.

The value of the damage was estimated at about $200.

Attempted burglary

One man returned to his home in the 1000 block of Colquitt Street just before 10 p.m. on Monday and discovered a side door to the residence was kicked in.

He told LaGrange police he set his home alarm before he left the house about 7:30 p.m. The alarm was going off when the victim arrived home, the police report stated.

A mother and daughter were arrested Monday about 2:15 p.m. for taking merchandise and trying to return it to customer service inside the Walmart at 803 New Franklin Road.

A Walmart manager said the two women did not walk in the store with any items, according to the police report. The mother and daughter were spotted on surveillance cameras taking merchandise such as food, dog food and DVDs, and placing them in a shopping cart.

The women then tried to fraudulently return the items with a receipt, the police report stated. The value of the merchandise was $74.
