JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

School is out and so, too, are BB guns.

On Monday, Jonesboro police responded to 5 reports of car windows shot out by BB pellets.

The first call rolled in at 6:10 a.m.

The victim, who lives in the 1000-block of Mays Road, told Officer Christopher Pigg she was on her way to work when she saw the back glass of her Dodge Ram pickup truck was shattered.

Two other vehicles, including one belonging to a neighbor, also had their back windshields shot out.

A few minutes later, Officer Tommy Fitzgerald was dispatched to the 2400-block of Stallings Lane regarding another shot out windshield.

While Pigg and Fitzgerald were investigating their cases, Officer John Eidson, Jr. went to the 1100-block of Mays to investigate two more reports.

Upon wrapping up his investigation on Stallings, Fitzgerald responded to yet another report of two vehicles with shot out windshields in the 1900-block of Greensboro Road.

The last call of the day came in at 5:20 p.m. when Officer Ethan Sanderlin was dispatched to the 1000-block of Scott Street regarding two more broken vehicle windshields.

In total 10 cars were damaged, according to the reports. All of the damage appeared to be from a pellet gun.

Anyone having any information on this recent spate of BB broken windshields is urged to call Crimestoppers at 935-STOP (7867).
