2. Hit and run accident

On 052409 at 0141 hours, Officer Michael Shufedlt investigated an accident at Harmony and Dawna Dr. A 1999 Pontiac Grand Am ran off the road and struck a metal dumpster. The Grand Am then struck a vehicle parked in a driveway, pushing it into a trailer hitch and pushing a mobile home 6 feet. The driver then fled the scene. Investigation is still ongoing and an arrest warrant is being requested for the suspect. A resident inside the mobile home was taken to MCSO for minor injuries sustained from the impact.

3. Vandalism to vehicle

On 05-23-09 at 0945 hours I, Officer Brandon Carbaugh, was dispatched to 600 block of N. 7th, in reference to malicious injury to property. Upon arrival I spoke with Ashley Christian, the owner of a 2001 Saturn. She advised that she had parked her car in her driveway and locked the doors. When she came out about 0945 hours she noticed her turn signals and light switches had been broke from her steering column and were laying in the floor. She stated she also found her cell phone laying in the roadway. I noticed that the drivers rear door window was left down and it appeared that this is how entry was gained. I also noticed behind the front right tire that it appeared the brake line had been cut and brake fluid was on the driveway. There is a suspect at this time, but he has not been located for an interview.
