LaGrange police are searching for a group of white males who robbed a Warm Springs man in LaGrange Tuesday, taking his car.

A police report gave the following account:

Officers responded about 8 p.m. to the 100 block of Youngs Mill Road, where they spoke with the victim, who was at a friend’s home. He told officers he was going outside the residence to clean his 2005 Cadillac CTS when a dark-colored SUV pulled into the driveway and several white males wearing ski masks got out to confront him.

The subjects told the victim that they were taking his vehicle. He stepped away from the car, then one of the robbers grabbed his arm and threw him to the ground. Two of the robbers got into the Cadillac and drove out of the driveway, followed by the other robbers getting into the SUV and tailing behind.

Officers checked the area, but were unable to locate any suspects or the stolen vehicle.

This case was under investigation and anyone with additional information was asked to contact the LaGrange Police Department at 706-883-2603 or Troup County Crime Stoppers at 706-812-1000, or text an anonymous tip to 274637, keyword “LAGRANGE.” Tips also may be submitted online at or
