A 57-year-old Pastors Walk man came to police headquarters on Monday to report a dime-sized dent on the rear-quarter-panel on the passenger side of his jeep. The damage may have been inflicted by a bb, according to police.
Police said he decided to report the vandalism because of several other incidents of pellet gun shootings in town this summer. He believes his jeep was shot sometime on Saturday night.
Reading is Fundamental
The director of Edith Wheeler Memorial Library, 733 Monroe Turnpike, told police that two men who came into the library were yelling at each other at around 11:35 a.m. on Monday.
Police spoke to the two library patrons, a 61-year-old Boot Shop Lane man and a 26-year-old Cross Hill Road man. The older man was angry at the younger one, because he had made an illegal left turn into the parking lot from Route 111, according to police.
The older one reportedly told him, "You're going to the library to read and you can't read the sign."
Police said drivers going north on Monroe Turnpike cannot turn left into the library parking lot, rather they must turn into the Monroe Town Hall parking lot then make a left toward the library. However, drivers heading south on Route 111 can make a right directly into the library lot.
After an officer spoke to the two library patrons, police said the men apologized to each other and were allowed to stay at the library.
Evading the Scene
The owner of a black Volkswagen Rabbit told police Friday that the driver of a white Ford pickup truck struck her car in the children's parking lot in back of Edith Wheeler Memorial Library at 9:17 p.m. and took off.
