Pellets damage vehicle

Children who live in a two-story house in the 3200 block of Nolene Drive allegedly climbed out an upstairs window and fired a pellet gun that damaged a neighbor’s vehicle, the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office reported.

No citations were issued March 25 after deputies investigated reports that four windows of a sports utility trailer were pierced leaving small, circular holes, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Damage was estimated at about $600.

The owner of the vehicle told deputies he believed someone from a neighboring house shot the windows with a pellet gun, the sheriff’s office reported.

Two weeks previous, the victim discovered three small holes in a vinyl fence in front of the trailer, according to the sheriff’s office.

A house directly south of the victim’s trailer is where at least four teenage boys live. Based on the apparent trajectory of the pellets, the victim believes the shots came from the neighbor’s upstairs windows.

The investigation remains open.
