DISORDERLY: Officers were dispatched to the 400 block of West Street on a harassment complaint. The male complainant advised every time his neighbors walk past his house they will yell profanity. He also stated that vehicles treat his street like a race track, and he is very upset. He was informed officers could increase patrol in the area, and they would be speaking to his neighbor. The complainant’s female neighbor advised officers no one in the household has been walking by yelling things at the male, and officers told them that if it is them or if they know who it is to stop doing it.

VANDALISM: At 1:38 p.m. officers were dispatched to the 100 block of Deshler Avenue in reference to a vehicle being vandalized. The male victim advised the night prior an officer had taken a report that the front and back windows of his vehicle were damaged with rocks. He stated that he was cleaning his vehicle and noticed there was sugar dumped into his fuel tank. Pictures were taken of the sugar in and around the fuel tank and added to this report.

VANDALISM: At 2:45 p.m. officers assigned to the Greenville High School were notified of a student that damaged the automatic door on the main entrance of the high school. The student was escorted to the SRO Office, and the male juvenile stated he was pulling on the door when the automatic door arm broke off. He did not mean to break the door. Upon further investigation, it was shown on security cameras that the juvenile had activated the automatic handicap door. While the door was extended into the open position, he was seen pulling and pushing on the door forcibly causing the top door arm to bend until it snapped. At this point, the male juvenile is confronted by the principle and escorted to the office. A service repair estimate came in around $3,327.83 due to the damage sustained from the male’s actions. The male was cited for criminal mischief, and his grandmother was notified.
