Pellet guns shot at apartment building

Bainbridge Public Safety received a report of someone causing damage at Brierwood Apartments in Bainbridge by shooting pellet guns at various objects.

On Wednesday morning at 11:21 a.m., BPS Officer Gary Hines responded to the apartments and spoke with the manager, who stated that pellet guns had apparently been used to damage two electrical meters, vinyl siding on a building and outdoor lights at the complex. Maintainence employees also found several pellet gun cartridges and pellets on and around Brierwood Apartments. Georgia Power had to come replace the electrical meters.

Later that afternoon, Sgt. Ray Cox came back to Brierwood Apartments after an anonymous caller complained that three youth with pellet guns were firing at lights and power meters. Using the caller’s description of three young men and their clothing, Sgt. Cox located three suspects in front of an apartment building.

Two suspects were banned from the property and warned not to return to the property, or they could be arrested for criminal trespass. The apartment manager identified one suspect as a resident of the apartments.
