Someone took electrical wire and damaged a home under construction in the 21400 block of Southeast Second Place between 5 p.m. Sept. 21 and 8 a.m. Sept. 23. The missing wire is valued at about $100 and about $600 in damage was done to the property.



Someone cut up screens on the portable classrooms at Cascade Ridge Elementary School and left a noose hanging on a handrail overnight between Sept. 24 and 25. Five exterior screes had been cut, and someone had cut up several signs, including one that read “Welcome to Second Grade” which had its letters rearranged to spell “cocaine.” No word on where they got the “i.” A knife was also taped to a wall. School maintenance workers removed the noose and knife before police arrived because students were coming and they did not want the children to see them. The noose appeared to be made of a 6-foot cotton rope; the knife looked like an old kitchen knife.
