BLOTTER: Police reports published June 9


• VEHICLE FIRE: Police responded to a reported vehicle on fire at 3:30 a.m. Saturday in the 1800 block of Whitney Avenue. Upon arrival, police said a van in a driveway was fully engulfed in flames, while the owner and her grandchild were evacuated from a nearby residence. The owner told police she didn't know why her van would be on fire. Fire officials report the cause of the fire to be electrical.



• THEFT: A River Road man told sheriff's deputies on Friday that sometime between April 7 and April 9 someone took a Sears credit card from his bedroom. The card was then used on April 8 and April 9 at the Sears on Williams Road and the K-Mart on Military Road for purchases totaling $863.98. The victim offered deputies a potential suspect.



• RECOVERED GOLF CART: Sheriff's deputies were called to a farmer's field behind 7077 Wheeler Road on Saturday where a Yamaha golf cart stolen from Oak Run Golf Course on Lake Avenue was recovered. The cart was partially spray-painted black with obscenities written on the seat. The roof was missing and there was damage all around the relatively new cart. A member of the sheriff's office's crime scene unit responded and gathered evidence from the scene. A witness said he thought he saw the golf cart driving by his home recently with two to three juveniles riding on it.

• BURGLARY: Sheriff's deputies were called to Tread City Tire, 6563 South Transit Road, about 1:15 a.m. Sunday for a report of a burglary. A glass window next to the front door was smashed and deputies found several drops of blood on the floor throughout the business' showroom. The cash drawer behind the service desk had noticeable pry marks as well as more drops of blood. About $50 was taken from the cash drawer along with a check for $75. More blood and partial fingerprints were discovered on a second desk where an undetermined amount of money was taken. A K-9 unit was called out to search for the suspect but came up empty. Crime scene investigators were then called in to gather evidence.
