Woman suspected of vandalism
A vandal caused an excessive amount of damage to an 18-year-old woman’s green 1999 Pontiac Sunfire between 4:15 and 9 p.m. Thursday, while it was parked in the 200 block of Justice Court, southeast of Valparaiso.

Bicycle stolen out of locked garage
A $200 BMX-style bicycle was reported stolen from a locked garage in the 700 block of Heritage Road. It was discovered to be missing shortly after a friend of the owner reportedly saw, at about 3:40 p.m. Thursday, an unknown male on what appeared to be the bike, which is black with pink hand grips and blue pedals. There were no signs of forced entry, but the owner’s mother told police it was possible to enter the garage through the window.
