Highlights from reports from the past week:

Car keyed with foul language, drawing

On Saturday morning Oakland Township Substation deputies responded to a complaint about a pickup being vandalized late Friday night.

A man's blue 2005 Dodge Ram, which was parked in his driveway on the 3000 block of Wyndam Lane, was keyed with a male genital shape and the words "F*** You" etched into the hood. A swirly pattern was also found engraved on the driver's door, according to the report.

A small rock was left inside the rear trailer hitch and one on the bed cover of the truck as well, detailed the report. After the deputy asked if the man had any children, he said he had a son in middle school and a daughter in high school. The deputy suggested the resident ask his children if they could think of anybody who would damage the vehicle.

The resident has since reported the estimated cost to fix the truck is more than $1,900.

Flour, eggs and nail polish smother cars

Two other similar malicious destruction of property incidents were called into the deputies on Sunday afternoon. Two residents on the 3000 block of Inverness Drive reported that between Friday night and Saturday morning their vehicles parked in their respective driveways had been vandalized.

One resident noted that his white 2010 Nissan Altima had been covered with flour, eggs and nail polish, according to the report. Likewise, the other resident reported that his red 2010 Chevy Malibu was covered in the same materials and was keyed on the hood and left side of the vehicle. Both residents had cleaned off the eggs, flour and nail polish; however, the owner of the Altima sent images of the vandalism to the deputies, and the responding deputy was able to see the key marks made in the Malibu, too, according to the reports.

There are no suspects at this time for the three vehicle-related incidents.

Man arrested for trespassing

The owner contacted the Oakland Township Substation on Saturday noting that the Leonard resident was playing basketball on Dogwood Street and that he had previously notified the Leonard resident not to return to the property, according to the report.

The report noted that the teen appeared to have seen the patrol car and started to hide from the responding deputy. The deputy caught up to the teen and detained him for trespassing. After admitting to receiving the notice from the owner previously to stay off the property, the teen was released and issued a trespassing citation.
