Officer Tracey Stoetzel investigated a report of vandalism at West End Tobacco Outlet. A store employee had three tires slashed. The employee was told about 8:45 p.m. by a customer who told her she had a flat tire.. She went outside and attempted to put air into the tire and when that failed she started to take off the spare tire to mount it. It was then she discovered that the rear tire on the passenger side was flat too. It was the second such incident to happen to a store employee in the last three months.
Officer Randy Neal investigated the theft of a laptop computer from the residence on Hayes Street.
Police investigated a hole cut into the fence at the MTEMC warehouse. The chain link wire had been cut with a bolt cutter and the hole was large enought for a person to crouch and move through. Nothing was discovered missing at the time.
