The following incidents were obtained from Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office reports:
•†A Tall Pines Road resident reported hearing three gunshots that evidently penetrated his residence at about 12:30 a.m. on April 30. The victim and responding deputy found the front window had a bullet hole in it. The victim said he and his family do not have any known enemies.
•†A truck driver parked his cargo truck at his home on Lindy Creek Road at about 7:30 p.m. on April 28. He noticed the windshield was damaged at about 2:30 p.m. the next day. The victim found a shattered glass soda bottle on the ground next to the truck.
The victim said he believes the glass bottle was thrown at the truck and caused the window damage, which is estimated at about $300.
•†An officer was stopped by a citizen the morning of April 30 on Redbank Road to report that a shotgun with a sawed-off barrel had been found along the fence behind a lot. The firearm’s serial number and model number were illegible due to rust.
•†A South Cranford Drive man reported that someone vandalized his car overnight. When he checked on his vehicle the afternoon of April 22 he said someone had poured 10 gallons of water into the gas tank of his 1999 Chevy Silverado. The victim said the water caused $800 in damage.
