On June 18, Kortni Bishop and Justin Pierce of CR 1150W contacted the LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department regarding a moped that had been taken from their property while they weren’t home.
According to the police report, the moped was damaged and then returned to their house prior to their arrival. A neighbor allegedly told them that Dennis Felch Jr., 43, also of CR 1150W, was the suspect and they had seen him on the moped. Contact was made with Dennis Felch Jr. and during his statement he told officers that he was not given permission to use the moped.
Upon running a computer check on the moped, officers discovered that the moped was reported stolen in Elkhart. The moped was seized and taken to the sheriff’s department for safekeeping. Bishop and Pierce provided officers with information on where they bought the moped.
This incident is still under investigation and anyone with information is asked to contact the LaGrange Sheriff’s Department at 463-7491.
