Vandals keep Jonesboro police busy

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Vandals armed with pellet guns kept Jonesboro police busy Wednesday morning. 

Within 5 hours officers responded to 3 reports of windows shot out.

Plaza Tire Service, 1404 S. Caraway, reported the first incident at 7:28 a.m. Wednesday.

According to the initial incident report, sometime between 6 p.m. Tuesday and 7:15 the next morning one of the front windows was shattered.

The responding officer stated the damage, estimated at $500, seemed to have been caused by a pellet gun.

While he was investigating that case, another officer was called to Dierksen Hospice, 4315 E. Johnson, regarding two glass doors being broken out.

The damage was discovered at 7:40 a.m. when employees arrived at the hospice. The value of the doors was set at $1,000.

Then at 11:51 a.m. an officer was dispatched to the 1700-block of Murray Creek where someone reportedly shot out a van window.

In addition to the shattered window, the officer also found a small dent and chip in the driver's side of the vehicle.

The damage, estimated at $750, appeared to have been caused by an air rifle, according to the incident report.

Anyone having information on these acts of vandalism is asked to call the Jonesboro Police Department or Crimestoppers at 935-STOP.
