LOUISA, Ky. -- The Louisa Police Department is investigating a break in at Dee's Drive Inn Restaurant over the weekend.
According to Chief Greg Fugitt Sgt. Ed Cordle responded to a suspicious person call at around 2:30 a.m. last Thursday. When he arrived he found a vehicle with a person sitting in it across the street from the restaurant. After Cordle telling him he could not sit there, the man left.
At approximately 4:30 a.m. employees opened the restaurant and found the door had been pried open and the restaurant had been rummaged through.
"It appeared they were going through everything looking for money, Chief Fugitt said. "They didn't find any money and so nothing was taken. We have fingerprints and some leads we are looking in to."
Fugitt said they are working on the case and it is being handled by Ptl. Steve Wilburn. Anyone with information can call the LPD'S at 606-638-4058. Callers can remain anonymous.
LAWRENCE COUNTY – June 19, 2013 – KY 3399 in Lawrence County, at the 2.2 mile marker, will be closed Thursday, June 20, from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. so that Highway District 12’s maintenance crew can replace a drain tile that runs underneath the pavement. Todd Moran, Lawrence County Superintendent, said the crew worked Wednesday at the site, attempting to repair the culvert so that they would have to close the road. “It’s too deteriorated,” he said. “We need to replace it so that the drainage on the road is as good as it can be. I’m sorry for the inconvenience. It’s only part of one day, so hopefully people will understand and be patient.”
The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office had their Annual Ride for the Ranch this past Saturday. Several bikers showed up for the event that began at the Lawrence County Park. Lunch was also served.
The bike ride helps the Sheriff's office to afford to send boys and girls from Lawrence County to attend summer camp where they learn to swim, fish and other summer time activities.
Sheriff Garrett Roberts, right, has sponsored the Ride for the ranch' for several years.Four boys attended the week long camp this year. They were Dallas and Nate Tarring and David and Justin Jones. The boys returned this past week from their adventure. One girl, Lillian Bowen attended camp as well.
The kids who attend also meet other boys and girls from other parts of the state. This ride is held every year and all money from entry fees goes toward kids.
"This is something we can do for the kids in our area," Lawrence County Sheriff Garrett Roberts said. "They really seem to enjoy the camp every year and also it helps with some of the things we do for the kids during the Christmas season as well."
