CUMMING, Ga. — Someone trespassed into homes under construction and kicked holes into the drywall, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff's incident report.

At about 4:30 p.m. Dec. 6, deputies were dispatched to homes in the 2000 block of Englewood Drive in the Ansley at Pilgrim Mill subdivision.

Builders told deputies sometime between Dec. 4 and Dec. 6, someone had destroyed drywall in two homes under construction.

Deputies said they saw about 10 to 15 holes in the newly hung drywall on the walls of the upstairs rear bedrooms.

Deputies said even though they found no shoeprints, the height and size of some of the damaged indicated that they had been kicked in.

Deputies said it was possible local youths may have caused the damage as the other rooms of the site were left intact and the damage appears random.
