Equipment at a subdivision development was targeted by vandals sometime in the past few days.

According to a report filed by deputy Robert O’Daniel, David Job was identified as the complainant.

Job said a Chevrolet dump truck had severe damage.

Headlights were broken out, the vehicle’s instrument panel was destroyed and then vandals broke windows from a grading machine and took a battery from another piece of equipment on the property.

Job was able to provide license tag numbers after he had spotted juveniles riding around the fields near the construction area. That information was passed along to detectives with the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division.

Damage to the equipment, including loss, was estimated at $2,300.

Investigation is continuing.

- Approximately $11,000 in jewelry items were taken during an apparent burglary at a Harris Creek Trail address. The victim made the discovery after noticing her laptop computer missing.

According to a report filed by deputy Kolby Duckett, Deborah Akins had taken her granddaughter to school. Akins then went to work, and her husband reportedly began looking for the computer. After further investigation, Akins discovered someone had entered the home and taken rings, bracelets and other jewelry items as well.

Detective Rob Wilson responded to the scene to aid in the initial investigation.

- A utility trailer was reported stolen from a Lois Street address earlier this week.

According to a report filed by deputy Brandon Warren, the 16-foot blue trailer belonged to Steve Jordan.

Jordan said the trailer could have been missing up to two weeks prior to his reporting it Monday.

The trailer was valued at $1,600.
