    Odd dents discovered on damaged truck

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer went to a campus parking lot on Cherry Avenue to examine reports of damage done to a Ford F-150 truck at 8:10 a.m. on Nov. 17. He met with the owner, a UA student, who said that he had parked his car there the previous day at about 5 p.m.

    He picked it up that night at 11 p.m., drove it home and didn’t notice any damage to it at the time. The next morning, he parked his car in the same area at 7 a.m. and when he came back at 8 a.m., he noticed there was a dent below his rear window on the passenger’s side. The dent was approximately 12 inches wide and was pushed in deep enough that a piece of metal from underneath was pushed into the side panel. The molding of the passenger’s side window had a four-inch chunk missing from the bottom. There were also two pry marks in the paint next to the window.

    No entry was made into the truck, nor was anything taken.
