Suspicious Condition / Found Property (1171 Duck Road)

A suspicious backpack was found sitting in a parking space in the covered parking deck. Out of an abundance of caution a K-9 was brought in to check the bag and surrounding area.  Nothing suspicious or dangerous was found.  The bag contained diapers and related baby items. The backpack will be held as found property.

 

Vehicle Breaking and Entering (105 Ships Wheel Court)

The sliding door to a minivan was found sitting open by its owner. It appeared that the suspect went through personal belongings that were inside the van.  A checkbook for a closed account was reported stolen.

 

Vandalism (161 Mantoac Ct)

A visitor called to report his car was vandalized with animal feces. His wife walked down to the car on Thursday morning and felt something on her hand when she lifted the handle. She then saw a brown paper on the windshield with more dog feces. The note on the paper said “The gorilla mask was hilarious”. The reporting party reported “photo bombing” family portraits to total strangers on the beach as a joke. Possible suspects were spoken to but would not admit to the retaliation.
