Apartment complex owner reports vandalism
GIRARD -- A New Year's Eve party turned ugly, resulting in damage to four apartments at a complex at 977 Tibbetts-Wick Road.
A tenant of one of the apartments told police he would take responsibility for the damage.
Keith Ferry, owner of Valley Land Management, called police early Tuesday after finding his property vandalized.
The police report says water was left running, damaging walls and ceilings. In one apartment in which the tenant was not home, graffiti was drawn on freshly painted walls. Eggs also were thrown on the walls. There also was plumbing and electrical damage.
In the apartment where the party was held, according to the report, the damage couldn't be surveyed because of debris, including beer cans, overturned furniture and shaving cream sprayed around.
Some of Ferry's power tools had been tossed from a second-floor window onto the ground, police said.
