Parking Lot Mischief: Officers responded to a SR 410 store for vandalism to the reporting party’s motorcycle. He told officers he got into a car with his girlfriend and left his motorcycle in the store’s parking. Then when he returned, he saw that his motorcycle had been knocked over causing some damage. He told officers he suspected he knew who had done the damage, explaining a co-worker of his girlfriend’s was in the car with her when she arrived at the parking lot. The three are connected in a “love triangle” of sorts and the suspect exited the vehicle before it left. After watching surveillance footage, it was confirmed the co-worker is who caused the damage. The officers spoke with him via phone and informed him that he would be cited for malicious mischief in the third degree.
