Police Reports: Pink Paintball Shooter Strikes Again and Again ...

Officers responded to several vandalism complaints involving pink paintballs early Tuesday evening.

A Pastors Walk woman living in the 100 block reported that her house was shot with pink paintballs at 5:05 Tuesday evening and officers found a splatter mark on the front door and on a window, police said.

As the officers left the scene a half hour later, another report came in of three paintball shots being fired at a house on Wendover Drive. A window and frame of the house in the 100 block of the street were struck, according to the report.

Moments later, another woman complained that her Pequot Court residence was hit by pink paintballs.

At 6:10 p.m., the president of Great Oak Farms called police to report that several other homes in his complex were also hit by pink paintballs.

A similar report was made on Monday of two vehicles on Horizon Court being struck several times with pink paintballs and police believe it may be related to the other vandalism complaints.

That's just plain wrong. Some people have no respect for property that isn't theirs. Where are the parents of these kids (if it is kids). If it's adults they should definately throw them in jail for awhile and hopefully they will learn a lesson. Hopefully the police will find out who did this. What is happening to this country these days people can be so disrespectful and they should be punished not a fine or slap on the wrist & also make them clean up their messes and fix whatever they did.

Well they hit our neighborhood last night. Several houses on Riding Ridge into Gaylor and then down Pastors Walk. Really hoping they can catch these kids!

Not fun cleaning off your house with a bucket of water in the middle of winter.

Seriously, Monroe, is this the WORST of your problems? Stop whining. Yeah, it's annoying, and rude, I get that, I do, I feel bad that y'all have to clean it up in the winter, and it IS a blatant disregard for other people's... but there are worse things. Like real bullets. So, be thankful.

Janyce, yep...that's why we choose to live in a place like monroe, instead of new haven, hartford or bridgeport. Regardless of how little you think this problem is, turning your head to it helps nothing.

In pretty sure Janice didn't turn her head. She clearly stated what these people are doing is rude and disrespectful, but she's right the problem could be a lot worse than it is. While yes the people being effected have the right to be mad, everyone needs to remember we are all pretty lucky not to have real bullets flying around.

no we are not "lucky" we are here for a reason

Lucky? You might be lucky to have been raised here, but my living here was a choice, not a miracle. If bullet's start flying, i'm out.
