The Great Bend Police Department received several reports of criminal damage to property last Friday and into the weekend. Reports included graffiti, broken windows and slashed tires.

Not all of the damage was random, Lt. William Browne at the GBPD said Monday. Two vehicles that were damaged with spray paint seemed to have been specifically targeted. One was painted with obscenities, and one had the windshield and headlight covers blackened.

These incidents were on the police log for Friday through Sunday:

Someone spray painted a trailer and building at 623 Baker Ave.

Someone used spray paint on a Dodge pickup at 2115 Eighth St.

Spray paint on a Chevy Cavalier at 701 Williams St. was reported Friday.

A window at 3112 18th St. was shot out with an Airsoft gun.

An unknown person spray painted a building at 2420 Ninth St.

A Mazda pickup at 1208 Bradley Road was damaged.

Someone spray painted a building at 2528 10th St.

Someone spray painted the building at 2421 10th St.

Someone broke out a front window at Great Bend Coffee, 2015 Lakin Ave.

Someone broke the front window on a residence at 2904 Williams St.

Someone slashed the tires on a Chevy pickup at 1520 Baker Ave., it was reported Sunday morning.

Elsewhere in Barton County, the sheriff’s office was dispatched to 620 Cunnife Ave. in Pawnee Rock, in reference to damage to a yard, reportedly done last Thursday night by a four-wheeler.
