The Chattooga County Sheriff’s Department was called to a shopping center on Sunday to investigate a van break-in that was reported by an employee that works at Lookout Mountain Community Services.
The incident was reported by someone who was cleaning up the parking lot and noticed that a Dodge Caravan’s back window had been broken out. The responding deputy spoke with Larry Howard, who owns the shopping center. Mr. Howard said that he would look at security camera footage to see if there was any evidence to provide the sheriff’s office.
The deputy then spoke with the employee of Lookout Mountain Community Services who said that she would contact the person who normally drove the van to come and see if anything was missing.
The responding deputy was able to get pictures of foot prints and fingerprints that were left on the van. The van had a broken back window and fresh dents and scratches.
The incident is still under investigation.
