Blotter: Two suspected of causing $11,000 worth of damage to trailer home

The owner of a trailer home on the 200 block of Fourth Street Southwest reported that someone had allegedly vandalised a trailer home on Friday morning, Dickinson Police Capt. David Wilkie said. However, when officers arrived they arrested a 34-year-old Dickinson man for possession of drug paraphernalia-marijuana, possession of a controlled substance-marijuana and possession of a scheduled drug. He also had a warrant out for his arrest for probation violation.

At the same time, a 40-year-old Dickinson woman at the same location was cited for possession of drug paraphernalia-marijuana and possession of a controlled substance-marijuana.

The owner estimates that there was around $11,000 worth of damage done to the home, including several broken doors, windows and cabinets as well as holes in the walls of nearly every room. The two are suspected for doing the damage.

The case has been forwarded to the state's attorney's office for consideration of vandalism charges.
