During the overnight hours of April 1, LPPD encountered Max Shore in the area of N. Lockwillow Avenue and Ridgeview Drive. Shore appeared under the influence of a controlled substance and was in possession of items and property commonly associated with thefts from motor vehicles. The initial canvass of the area did not yield any victims.
As a result of the follow-up investigation and assistance from the public, LPPD was able to identify several victims and to collect video surveillance from residential security cameras. LPPD was then able to charge Shore with four counts of Theft From Motor Vehicle; four counts of Loitering and Prowling at Night; Possession of an Instrument of Crime; Criminal Mischief; and Public Drunkenness. Charges were filed on April 29.
LPPD is grateful to the public for their assistance in closing this case.
