Sheriff looks for end to BB gun vandalism

Bartholomew County authorities want to find the vandals who are shooting out windows with BB Guns.

Sheriff Matt Myers reports that there have been eight incidents of BB gun damage since early November. Most have involved vehicle windows being shot out, but homes and businesses have also been hit, Myers says.

Two of the incidents happened in Elizabethtown, with the rest happening on Marr Road and County Road 800N.

Myers stresses that he does not see this as a simple prank, as it involves large expenses for the affected vehicle and home owners. The required extra patrols are also taking deputies away from other, more serious calls, he said.

If you have any information on the incidents, you can call the Sheriff’s Office at 812-379-1650 or call the anonymous Tip Line at 812-379-1712.
