Property damage: A man left a boat attached to a trailer in the driveway of his friend’s house. Sometime overnight, an unknown person punched a hole in the keyhole of the padlock securing the trailer hitch, breaking the lock. The man believed someone was trying to steal the boat and trailer. The man said he would cut the lock off and put in a new locking device.

Property damage: A man parked his truck in a spot beneath work taking place in a third-story window. When the man returned to his truck, he noticed dust in the vehicle. He also noticed a small dent. He believed the workers in the building were the responsible for the damage. He confronted someone he saw working in the window and told him he wanted the worker to pay for the damages. He said the worker responded with threatening comments.
The worker told an officer he was not responsible for the dent. He admitted making a confrontational statement, but he said he felt threatened because the man would not leave him alone. An officer told the man he could write a report for insurance purposes, but he could not make someone pay for the damage because there was no way of knowing for certain what caused the dent. The building manager placed cones in the parking spot beneath the window to avoid further issues.
