A Tifton man reported Tuesday that someone removed the outside air conditioning unit from his property located in the 200 block of Beech Street.
According to an incident report filed at the Tifton Police Department, he told police that while checking on his property, he noticed it was hot and there was no power to the building. He checked for the meter box and found it had been removed and the 4-ton Goodman heat pump was also gone. The heat pump is valued at approximately $2,500.
Officer Anthony Hughes reported he walked around to the side of the building and found someone had cut the chain and fence to remove the unit. The electrical meter was also removed from its box and left on the ground undamaged.
In another matter, a woman who lives in the 800 block of Tyson Avenue reported
Wednesday that while cleaning her bedroom, she discovered wood splinters on the floor. She noticed her wall and the back of her dresser were damaged. A hole was found in the wall, as well as a 9mm shell on the floor.
The woman and her husband reported they hadn’t noticed the damage until that day. They believe the damage occurred while they were away, because they hadn’t heard any gunshots in the area.
The husband went outside and found bullet holes on the north side of his residence and a neighbor’s house.
Officer Freddy Amaya reported he saw the bullet holes at the couple’s home and a window at a nearby neighbor’s house. The neighbor said the bullet hole in his window had been there for about at least a month after a 13-year-old male pulled out a gun and shot at his 16-year-old brother. He said since then, his brother has been sent off to Eastman.
