Watkinsville Police on Saturday took a report of someone having tossed a rock through a rear window at the Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation building on 34 School Street. The glass was smashed but nothing else was damaged, Chief Lee O'Dillon wrote in a news release.
Last week officers also responded to these calls for service:
- A 1998 Jeep Cherokee turned into the path of a northbound 2001 Chrysler Sebring on Ga. Highway 15 near Athens Seed Company on Feb. 11 around 4 p.m. No one was injured. A 75-year-old Athens man was charged with failure to yield to the right of way while turning left.
- A 2000 Ford Taurus exited a driveway onto Morrison Street and struck the side of a 1986 Ford F-150 on Feb. 14 shortly after 9 a.m. Neither driver was injured. An Athens man, 28, was charged with failure to yield to the right of way.
- On Friday just before 11 a.m., police stopped a 1990 Dodge Dakota along Whitehall Road after receiving complaints about the condition of the operator. Police also observed the erratic manner of driving. After failing sobriety testing, O'Dillon says Franklin H. Milford, 73, of South Main Street, was charged with DUI and improper lane usage. Milford was booked and later posted bond to Municipal Court. An arrest doesn't mean a conviction.
- A resident of Harden Hill Road reported that someone knocked down his mailbox sometime during the day on Sunday. It may have been struck by a vehicle.
Watkinsville police responded to a total of 31 calls within city limits between Feb. 11-17, 2013.
