Damage and loss were discovered at a local church Sunday after an air unit failed to engage.

According to Tony Caywood of New Hope Baptist Church, someone cut wiring and damaged an electrical box sometime prior to Sunday morning.

A report was filed with deputy Adam Ensley. Damage and loss were estimated at $250.

Investigation is continuing and deputies were placed on extra patrol around the area.

n Deputy Paul Singleton filed a report for Marilyn Presswood, who said while she was away from her Old Parksville Road residence, someone entered her garage and took an air compressor.

Presswood also noted damage to a garage door rail, apparently damaged due to the door being forced open.

Presswood could not offer the brand name of the air compressor, but said it was yellow. Damage and loss were estimated at $350.

n Car parts were the target for thieves who went onto property at a Georgetown Road storage facility and took the items from a truck parked there.

According to a report filed by deputy Earl Pike, Marty Lowe had his 1968 GMC pickup truck parked at Cleveland Storage.

He checks on the truck each month, according to the report.

Lowe said he noticed that a chain securing the hood of the truck had been cut. Further inspection revealed someone had removed a Holley carburetor, a Mallory electronic ignition system and a chrome breather from the engine.

The loss was estimated at $700.
