On Friday morning, June 7, the Lafayette Police Department received a call of an attempted break in at Andrew Stanford’s Law Office located on the public square.

When Officer Garrett Flatt arrived, someone had tried to pry open the door but the double door secure locks located inside, kept them from gaining entry to the law firm.

“There has been a rash of break ins and vandalism around town,” said Detective Jason Roberts. “The Macon County Health Department was broken into a couple of weeks ago. But most recently was a break in at Tooley & Carver, where the culprits took a bag containing $2,500 in cash and checks.”

Roberts says a bicycle has been stolen, along with a go-cart, and they have also received reports of spray painting all in the same area of town. “I think teenagers might be involved in some of this activity, but I’m not sure.”

“If you see anything that doesn’t seem right, or anything odd please let us know. And if you see juveniles out past the 11:00 p.m. curfew, please call the Lafayette Police Department at 666-4725.”

Anthony Summers

The Macon County Grand Jury met for it’s June session last week before Judge David E. Durham and handed down 70 true bills, 3 no true, 43 sealed and 3 hold.

During the session, 34-year-old Anthony Jason Summers was indicted for attempted second degree murder. Charges stem from the Lafayette Police Department’s investigation on Saturday, February 2, when a stabbing was reported at 201 Walton Avenue that night. Upon arriving at the home, Officer Matt Looper secured the area and began a line of questioning. Evidently, Summers and a female, Mary Louise Ward, had gotten into an argument and he pulled a knife and stabbed her twice in the back. The officer located the knife along with the bloody clothing worn by Ward. Summers, who was intoxicated, was found hiding under a blanket. Looper charged the suspect and transported him to jail. Ward was carried to Vanderbilt Hospital by ground ambulance after helicopters declined to fly due to the weather conditions.

Several drug indictments were also returned:

William C. Andrews, of Lafayette, was indicted on charges of promotion of methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and quarantine of property when a meth lab was discovered by the LPD at his home on Chamberlain Avenue in the summer of 2012. He was found back inside of the home that night and was arrested by Sgt. Shane Reed.

43-year-old Fanessa Lynn Duke, of Lafayette, has been indicted after LPD Officer Matt Looper found several pills and methamphetamine in her purse following an investigative talk in the parking lot of Walgreens on Friday, January 18. In the trunk of her vehicle the officer also found a bottle that Duke had set up for a “shake n bake” meth lab. This resulted in her arrest for promotion of methamphetamine manufacture, possession of a Schedule II drug and possession of a Schedule IV drug.

Theresa Czapla, age 35, of Lafayette, was indicted for possession of drug paraphernalia, reckless endangerment, and intent to manufacture methamphetamine after Sheriff Mark Gammons and officers went to her Wilmore Hollow residence and found her along with two other male subjects outside. One of the men was carrying a bottle of product used to cook meth and they also found a bottle that he had dropped, which contained finished product. Czapla’s one-year-old child was located inside the home, and in an outbuilding they discovered components used in cooking meth.  

Chester Loudy was indicted for promotion of meth manufacture, intent to manufacture methamphetamine and aggravated child abuse/neglect of a child under 6 years of age, after the RBS Police discovered two active meth labs on his property. One was located inside a truck tire and the other inside the trunk of a car. There was also a female companion present, along with two small children.

Hayden Shrum, who passed away in May of 2010 from Acute Myelogenous Leukemia, spent his last months planning this cancer awareness event, then called ‘Rockin’ the Park for Cancer Awareness.’ The event was a huge success, and friends and family have carried on the young man’s dream by continuing to host the outdoor music festival in his memory every year since his death.

Now entitled ‘Hayden Fest,’ the festival focuses on Hayden’s love of music and passion for helping others who are battling cancer. 

All proceeds from Hayden Fest will benefit those affected by cancer with an emphasis on infant to young adults.

Musical entertainment will feature Mama Tried, Super Nova-Cain, NWB Naked White Boys, Jason Gammons, Southern Image, Shattered Silence, Jeff Hudson and Sacred Soul.

Guests of the event are invited to participate in a silent auction, which includes an autographed guitar by Alan Jackson, and many other items. There will be great food hosted by Gibson’s Café.

Events for the kids will be provided at this free, family-friendly event.

Food, drinks and a variety of desserts will also be available for purchase.
