Police Bulletin

$1,000 in damage from park bench vandals

Vandals caused $1,000 in damage by overturning three 2,000-pound park benches last weekend, a police report said. The parks department received an anonymous call about the vandalism June 10, and the incident was reported to police June 13, although the report notes it was likely to have occurred June 10. A portion of one bench was broken when it was overturned and that bench will have to be replaced, the report said.

In other police reports:

A 15-year-old had a $175 Airsoft pellet rifle stolen from him in a June 11 incident in the 4700 block of Canary Way. The victim was walking with two friends when they were approached by a group of 12 to 15 people. A white male walked out of the group, demanded the rifle, and the youth turned it over. Police arriving at the scene were unable to locate any suspect.

Tools were stolen from different locations around the city recently. In a June 8 incident, $500 in drill bits, a $300 air compressor, and bins with $200 in fittings were stolen from a locked trailer between 7:45 and 7:55 a.m. in the 4200 block of Mirador Drive. The trailer's door was broken and a lock was stolen in that incident.

In a third incident, which occurred between 10:15 and 11:35 a.m. June 2, a $1,000 paint sprayer was stolen. That theft was reported June 8.

An auto burglary in the 1800 block of Tanglewood Way netted a $1,500 laptop computer, $100 in new girl's clothing, games valued at $100, a $105 Lowes gift card, two flashlights valued at $100, and a $50 laptop bag. The theft occurred between 10 p.m. June 13 and 7:30 a.m. June 14.
