LPD Officer Brock Garrison was the investigating officer.

* Nov. 5 -- A woman who went shopping with another woman reported money missing from her purse. She said the two were in a store when she fell and needed to go home, handed the purse to the other woman to carry, then once back at her home, asked the other woman to return to the store to purchase medicine. Over $100 was missing. LPD Officer Brock Garrison was the investigating officer.

* Nov. 6 -- A female resident called police after she came home and saw a man (she previously had a protective order against him) sitting in front of her apartment but when he was approached by her boyfriend, he sped off. An officer strongly urged her to obtain another protective order.

* Nov. 6 -- A resident reported a license plate was stolen off his vehicle that was parked at Glenburn Nursing Home between the hours of 3-11 p.m. LPD Officer Karl Jacobshagen was the investigating officer.

* Nov. 6 -- Officers responded to the WalMart store on the report of a theft and battery. At approximately 7:23 p.m., an unknown subject was stopped by asset protection personnel for shoplifting but the man shoved the employee and threw a box at her, which contained a Nintendo Wii. The man then fled on foot out of the store toward the northeast. Once he reached the north end of the parking lot, he headed east on foot, followed shortly after by a vehicle that exited the parking lot at a high rate of speed. The incident remains under investigation. LPD Officer Thomas Jerrels is the investigating officer.

* Nov. 7 -- A parent from Lyons reported her son was pushed during an argument with a 25-year-old Linton man. The incident occurred during a family reunion. LPD Officer Karl Jacobshagen was the investigating officer.
