Purcell police are investigating a report of an unknown suspect friending Purcell Junior High School students on Facebook and asking the students to send photos of themselves if they had webcams.

Principal Bret Petty told police Monday that he was contacted last week by a parent concerned about the Facebook activity.

The suspect account is for Casie Aleah. Petty told police that one profile shows Aleah to be male and another shows female.

Police were also called to investigate a counterfeit money complaint on Saturday.

An employee counting money at Taco Mayo, 1901 S. Green Ave., discovered the suspect $20 bill and called police.

Officer Sheila Batterton examined the cash, believed it was counterfeit and placed it in evidence.

Other incidents under investigation are two burglaries.

David Faught of Lexington told police that someone kicked in a storm door and solid core wooden door at a vacant rent house he owns.

The door was barricaded from the inside, however, and the suspect didn’t gain entry.

The attempted break-in at 425 Adams occurred between 7 p.m. February 21 and 1 p.m. February 22.

Faught told police that the same door was kicked in two to three weeks ago while his daughter was living in the house.

A stereo and some small items were taken, but Faught’s daughter asked him not to report that burglary.

Damage to the two doors last week was estimated at $200.

Junior Trouten reported that someone burglarized his storage unit at AAA Mini Storage, 220 Hallmark.

Taken from the unit were a bicycle, stereo and a bag of personal paperwork.

Trouten was at the storage unit at 10 a.m. Saturday and when he returned at 10:55 a.m. Sunday, he found the lock to his unit had been removed.

No monetary value was placed on the missing items.
