JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Vandals armed with pellet guns kept Jonesboro police busy Wednesday morning.

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.
