BULLET DAMAGE: A motorist travelling through Milton on June 13 reported bullet hole damage to her 2011 Jeep Compass. The driver told Milton police she recalled hearing a noise like a gun shot while travelling on Cogburn Road but did not know immediately that her vehicle was damaged. She later took her car to a repair shop and was told the damage appeared to be a bullet hole. Police did not locate any bullet and found no signs of a projectile entering through the driver’s side door panel, but the sheet metal of the door had a small hole that appeared to be the result of a bullet from a small-caliber gun.
