Car damaged night before move
A Douglas County sheriff’s deputy responded Aug. 20 to the 4900 block of Raintree Drive on a report of damage to a vehicle. The female victim, who was preparing to move out of state the following day, said four vehicles were parked outside the home, but hers was the only one that was vandalized.
She reported scratches on all four sides of the car and one tire was unable to hold air. She estimated about $4,000 worth of damage. Three liquor bottles also were thrown onto the driveway and smashed.
The victim said she worked for a bail bond company two years ago and now is working for the Federal Monetary Bureau. The deputy noted that he would be deactivating the case unless a fingerprint he collected leads to a suspect.
