JONESBORO, Ark. — The Jonesboro Police Department investigated three separate incidents on Tuesday that involved glass at the victim’s residence being shot out.

First at about 5:18 p.m. Tuesday, officers responded to the 4000-block of Aggie Road. The manager of an apartment complex told police that three of his tenants had reported having glass from their backdoor shot out with a BB gun.

Officers spoke with two of the three victims but neither of them mentioned they saw a suspect. One victim, however, did tell police she found small chips in the wood around the door and noticed a BB lodged in the wood.

Later that evening at about 9:30 p.m police responded to another victims at the same block of Aggie Road who reported the back glass of her vehicle was shot out.

The victim told police that she was backing out of her driveway when she noticed the back glass and back passenger side glass was busted on her other vehicle. She said the incident must have happened between 8 and 9:30 p.m.

The night still wasn’t over for the vandals or officers as another report came in at about 11:30 p.m. at the 3700 block of South Caraway Road. The victim yet again told police her rear window from vehicle had been broken.

She told police she had arrived at her apartment at about 6:30 p.m. and then returned to her vehicle at 11:10 P.M. p.m. to find the glass broken.

No possible suspects were reported at the time. It was not known if the incidents were related.
