Police received several reports from Greenfield Hill area homeowners last weekend that outdoor glass light fixtures were vandalized.
The first report came around 2:48 a.m. Saturday, when a Banks North Road resident said he saw a car parked near the end of his driveway and then heard glass breaking. The two glass lamps atop stone pillars were smashed and a rock was later found nearby. The lights are valued at about $500 each. Later, he discovered a cement statue of a horse, worth about $250, had been taken.
Later that morning, a Redding Road resident reported that around 2:15 a.m. he heard a car stop and people talking. When he turned on an outside light, the car left the area, but around 6:45 a.m. the resident discovered a brass lamp on top of a wooden post had been damaged by a rock. The lamp is valued at $1,000.
And at 10 a.m. Saturday, another Banks North Road resident reported two lanterns on top of stone pillars were broken. The lanterns were worth $400 each.
