A 49- year old Fairview Park Resident arrived at the Police Station to report someone had damaged her vehicle overnight. She parked her 2002 Volvo overnight, undamaged, in the parking lot of New Hope Church and had permission to do so. When she returned she found the front driver's side headlight and turn signal assembly had been broken. She found no other damage to her vehicle, and nothing to indicate who or what caused the damage. She knew of no one who would damage her vehicle deliberately, and did not believe that the vehicle was hit-skipped, given the way it was parked. The damage was photographed.
