A new mobile home suffered damage at the hands of vandals just after being delivered to its new property address.

A report filed with Bradley County Sheriff’s Office deputy Doug Graham said Fern Murphy had just purchased the home and had it moved to a Coffey Drive address.

The home was inspected Saturday.

On Tuesday, Murphy discovered several apparent holes in the vinyl siding.

The damage to the structure appeared to have been made by pellets or BBs.

A different kind of damage was also noted to front and rear doors of the home. According to Graham’s report, someone had attempted to pry them open.

No damage assessment was listed in the report.

- Stormie Chapman of a Samples Chapel Road address reported a burglary Tuesday at her home.

Deputy Daniel Watson filed a report.

According to his report, Chapman stated two males came to her door and knocked. Chapman failed to answer the door.

One of the men took a shovel which had been in the yard, then the men opened a small U-Haul trailer located on the property.

Chapman said the men took something from the trailer but she was not sure what the item was.

The men left the scene driving a small blue or gray SUV bearing a University of Georgia tag on the front of the vehicle. Loss was not estimated in the report.

- A number of items were taken from a truck parked in the driveway of a home whose owner had been out of town for approximately a month.

Angela Byram said she had been away sine May 2.

When she returned this week, Byram discovered a 1993 Chevrolet S-10 pickup which had belonged to her deceased husband had been burglarized.

The rear glass, dash trip, parts of the rear bumper and a license tag, along with a tool box in the bed of the truck, were missing.

The property was valued at $427.
