In September 2009, the Ledyard Police Department began an investigation into an alleged criminal lockout of tenants from a rental property on Kings Highway in Gales Ferry. Investigation revealed that a real estate agent had removed the personal property of the tenants renting the property and changed the household locks after the home was foreclosed on. As a result of this investigation an arrest warrant was issued by the superior court of New London for the arrest of Douglas A. Rapp (date of birth September 6, 1956) of 58 Lebanon Avenue Number 2F in Willimantic, Connecticut. He was charged with larceny 1st degree and criminal lockout. He was released with a court date of April 5, 2010, at GA 10 New London.
