Is "lodged" used correctly?

Post by tamguatlay »

Thirteen police reports have been lodged so far on the matter, with most of them found to be false or inconclusive, said Mr Khairy.

Some of them were lodged by recipients who did not experience any side effects after getting their jabs, he was quoted by the Malay Mail news portal as saying.

Is the word "lodged" in both paragraphs used correctly?

Thanks!

Not really. You lodge a complaint, and you make a report.
