Windows shot out

Police report vehicles belonging to the city of Goldsboro had windows shot out with an unknown weapon. The front passenger window of a 1992 Ford Taurus had its window shattered, causing $200 in damage, city employee Marion Bradford reported. A 2000 Ford Ranger also had its back window cracked throughout and a small bullet hole, Bradford reported, causing an estimated $250 in damage.


Someone took a diamond chain worth $1,350 and $20 in cash from an unlocked car at an Indian Springs Road residence, Wayne County Sheriff's Deputy C.R. Schaeffer said. Charles Tusing of Seven Springs reported the theft occurred Tuesday morning, Schaeffer said.
