DICKINSON - The Dickinson Police Department reported Wednesday morning that two separate locations sustained damage that appears to be the result of BB pellets.
Lincoln Elementary School officials called the police at 8:38 a.m. on Tuesday to report damages to two windows located on the north side of the building.
Although it is unclear when the damage actually occurred, Dickinson Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Paul Stremick said it happened sometime over the extended weekend. The broken windows were discovered Tuesday morning.
Authorities reported one window had four holes, which appear to be the result of BB pellets. A second window had a large hole which may have been the result of a rock striking the glass. There was about $500 in damages to the windows.
The incident that occurred at Lincoln Elementary School could be related to a second instance of vandalism which was reported the same day.
Dickinson’s Lisa Berry, 49, of 128 11th Ave. W., called authorities at 2:17 p.m. on Tuesday to report the window on the front door of her house had been hit with a BB pellet. The BB penetrated the door’s screen and window, and made an indent in the front door. The damages totaled about $50.
A damaged BB pellet was found at the scene and is thought to have been shot out of a CO2 gun.
Although Berry was unsure exactly when the incident occurred, she thinks it may have happened Monday night.
Currently there are no suspects for either incident.
