Someone broke into an elderly Greenville Road woman’s home while she was gone for Christmas, stealing nearly 17-hundred dollars worth of property.
The report from the Christian County Sheriff’s Office says 74-year old Betty Davis of Greenville Road was gone Christmas week and returned home to find her house ransacked.
The perpetrator had taken two televisions, clothing, a safe, jewelry and cash with a total value of $1,675.
Police believe someone forced open a window to get inside and left with the property out the back door. The investigation continues and no suspects are listed on the report.
The Christian County Sheriff’s Office arrested a South Virginia Street man early Tuesday morning on wanton endangerment charges.
The report from Deputy Eddie Frye says he was dispatched to Taco Bell on Fort Campbell Boulevard to the report of a truck hitting other vehicles in the parking lot. At least 10 witnesses reportedly said 23-year old Kevon Osborne of South Virginia Street had begun yelling at a vehicle in front of him in line and then hit it with his vehicle.
Osborne then allegedly backed out of line and got stuck in the mud, before backing up again at a high rate of speed at another vehicle which was able to get out of the way. No one was injured and Osborne was charged with first degree wanton endangerment.
No one was injured, but a car received damage when someone apparently fired a bullet into the air over the New Years holiday in Clarksville.
Clarksville Police believe someone may have fired a shot during a holiday celebration near 1065 Glenhurst Way, where 40-year old Tammy Nolan’s vehicle was found with a shattered windshield.
An officer found a bullet about eight feet from the vehicle and writes the damage was consistent with a gunshot. Approximately 400 dollars worth of damage was done to the vehicle and the case is being investigated as vandalism.
Public Information Officer Jim Knoll says the case is a reminder that a bullet has to come down somewhere when fired into the air.
