Police reports

  • A Lawrence police office on patrol about 4:20 a.m. today discovered a car on fire in the alley between the 1100 blocks of New Jersey and Connecticut. Firefighters extinguished the fire in the engine of the 1985 Oldsmobile. Damage to the vehicle was listed on a fire report at $1,800. In addition to damage from the fire, the 25-year-old Lawrence man who owns it told police that stereo equipment had been stolen from the vehicle. Lt. Ed Brunt said the man reported that four speakers and two amplifiers, valued at $1,090, were taken, and a $345 equalizer had been removed from the dashboard but left in the car. Brunt said the man told officers that he'd parked the car at a friend's house about 7 p.m. Monday so he could borrow the friend's vehicle to drive to work. The man's car tags expired Monday.
