Police Seek Public's Help in Property Damage Cases
A rash of criminal damage to property events has a number of police agencies investigating the crimes.
In Shorewood on Friday night, a number of cars were damaged with what appeared to be a BB gun. This was also the case in Channahon, Minooka and unincorporated areas of Will County.
Channahon Police Lt. Mark Fischer said the department took seven incident reports of damage to vehicles, but that around 20 people were victims in the incidents. That means that a number of cars in the same vicinity were damaged at the same time.
"Our evidence techs believe it’s a BB gun," Fischer said.
He added that unincorporated areas of Channahon and Troy townships also had reports of damage that were being handled by Will County Sheriff's Police.
Minooka Police Department had a similar situation.
"This past weekend, we had reports of 16 vehicles that were damaged that we believe to be by a BB gun or a pellet gun," Minooka Police Chief Justin Meyer said.
Damage in Minooka happened Friday night into Saturday morning.
If you have information for the incidents in Channahon, call 815-467-5152 and ask to speak to Detective Adam Bogart. In Minooka, call 815-467-2298 and speak with Detective Ryan MacDonald or Detective Keidra Meece.
