Police: Fenton Woman Believes Ex-Boyfriend Damaged Her Door, Vehicle
The following information was provided by the Fenton Police Department; an arrest does not necessarily mean a conviction.
Woman suspects ex-boyfriend of property damage
At 10 a.m. on Friday, a Fenton woman, 23, reported a broken doorknob and scratched car to the Fenton Police Department. Chief of Police Rick Aro said an officer met with the complainant, who lives in an apartment in the 3000 block of Arbor Drive.
The woman recently broke up with her boyfriend and owes him $300, Aro said. She told police the Fenton man, 21, was harassing her over the money she owes.
When the woman left her apartment around 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 22, her 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora was parked outside, the police report said. When the woman returned at 2:30 a.m. the next morning, the door knob was broken off her apartment, Aro said. She was able to get inside and didn’t immediately call police.
The next morning, on Nov. 23, the woman saw that her vehicle was scratched or “keyed” in several locations, he said. She told police she believes her ex-boyfriend is responsible for the damage.
Fenton police detectives will follow up, Aro said. The damage to the vehicle is probably several hundred dollars, he said. An estimate on it hasn’t been obtained yet.
Cross bow reported taken from pole barn
At approximately 8:50 p.m. on Saturday, a 36-year-old Fenton resident reported that his cross bow was stolen from a pole barn on his property, Aro said. The larceny was in the 1100 block of Dauner Road, from a pole barn about 50 yards from the man’s residence.
An officer met with man, who said between Nov. 21 and 24, the cross bow was stolen, Aro said. It is a brown Horton cross bow, valued at $250, the police report said.
There are no suspects or evidence, Aro said.
Officer finds suspected marijuana in vehicle
On Friday around 7 p.m., a Fenton police officer made a traffic stop on a Ford van in the area of Silver Lake Road and Silver Parkway. The officer contacted the driver, a 45-year-old Fenton resident, about the traffic violation, Aro said.
While interviewing the driver, the police officer smelled the odor of marijuana coming from inside the van, the police report said. The driver agreed to allow the officer to search the van, and the officer found two plastic bags with green plant material that the officer believed to be marijuana, Aro said.
The plant material field-tested positive for marijuana, and the driver was brought to the police station. The driver was given notice to appear in court in Fenton in January, Aro said. In addition, police seized the marijuana and placed it in an evidence locker.
