Intentional Damage

Posted on May 26, 2022 at 8:12 AM by Michelle Delaney

Reported: 5/25/2022 6:40PM 
Location: 100blk Kasan Ave, Volga

On the above date and time, the Brookings County Sheriff’s Office took report a vehicle had been purposefully damaged sometime within the last year. While driving south on Kasan Ave, the juvenile driver noticed odd sounds coming from the vehicle and when the driver stopped to inspect the vehicle a tire fell off. It appears someone intentionally loosened all the lug nuts. The driver was able to repair the vehicle and call for an investigation as there was no apparent reason, other than tampering, for the wheel to have fallen off. The total damage to the vehicle is estimated at $850.00. This incident remains under investigation by the Brookings County Sheriff’s Office.

As a safety precaution, the Brookings County Sheriff’s Office is requesting the motoring public to ensure the safety of their vehicle prior to entering the roadway. Tires and fasteners should be checked for damage, wear and tampering. If you do find damage which may have been intentional please call dispatch, 605-692-2113 and an officer will meet with you.
