Investigators at "dead end" in garage door vandalism

SOUR LAKE - By Justin Hinton, KFDM News

The Sour Lake Police Department says the investigation into an August vandalism of a veterans garage door has come to a dead end.

Until we receive some further leads, then we can pick it up again, said Chief Larry Saurage.

Chief Saurage says his department has done everything it can to find the person who spray painted a message on Michael Lansfords garage door, but it has not been able to track down the culprit.

The legible parts of the message said the following:

Get out of town or else. You are not welcome here. Wgot your dogsyou next. Go awawaydont come back. Concern citizenz of Sour Lake (sic).

Chief Saurage says he contacted the Texas Rangers and the Beaumont Police Department but they havent been able to solve the case.

Investigators believe it appears to be part of a neighborhood feud.

According to a police report, a neighbor reported an argument between Lansford and a neighbor around the time of the vandalism in which Lansford displayed a shotgun.

The policeman wanted to know what I had and I showed him what I had, said Lansford.  I said I have my license. I said it's not illegal to carry a weapon on my property. I'm not in the habit of it, but what do I do if someone comes at me with a weapon, what do I do then? And this is what the DA told me. If you're in imminent danger, you have the right to defend yourself.

Lansford said since that day, his neighborhood has been pretty quiet and he hasnt experienced any more trouble, but he has put several security measures in place.

I've got a security system in the house. I've got security cameras around the house. Anywhere I go, I can monitor this house, 24/7, he said.

He also has a number of lights he says help keep trouble away.

He still has plans to move so he can be closer to his family members who also live in Sour Lake.
