A Polaris ATV was reportedly taken from an outbuilding located on Dunn Farm Road.

According to a report filed by deputy Melanie Johnson of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, Sherry Bicknell said the theft was believed to have occurred Dec. 15. Bicknell said someone entered her unlocked storage shed and took the 2005 camo-painted Polaris 500 all-terrain vehicle.

Bicknell told Johnson she had noticed a suspicious pickup truck and a white van in the area of her home.

The ATV was valued at $6,500.

Bicknell was able to provide a serial number for the vehicle which was entered into the National Crime Information Center computer database.

- A HVAC unit was damaged with paint recently, but investigators were able to recover evidence that could lead to the perpetrator’s arrest.

A police report filed by officer Jennifer McGuire named Joe Griffin as the victim.

Griffin said when he arrived at the Church Street location, he found an air unit “completely spray painted in orange paint.”

The paint reportedly caused the unit to freeze over and not operate.

There also were expletives painted on nearby walls and other items.

Griffin said he recently caught a person painting graffiti on a wall and reported it to police.

A suspect description was provided to McGuire.

Evidence has been turned over to the Criminal Investigations Division at CPD.
