Trespassers in Forsyth County shoot trailer, damage property



CUMMING, Ga. — Someone drove through the property of an unfinished home, dented a mailbox and damaged the builder’s trailer causing $2,000 in damage, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

On Sept. 23, an employee of D.R. Horton told deputies someone drove from the woods by the power lines onto the property of an unfinished home in the Post Brook Farms subdivision off Post Road.

The tracks led from the driveway of the home in the 5000 block of Willow Oak Pass and onto the road.

Deputies said the mailbox was dented and the builder’s trailer appeared to have been shot. The marks on the door did not go all the way through but had damaged the paint.

Deputies also saw two similar holes in the windows.

The suspects apparently also drove a piece of heavy machine through freshly laid sod.

Deputies said the deep tire tracks in the sod caused ruts and looked as if they were made with dual rear tires, perhaps the work of a heavy piece of machinery like a skid steer or small forklift.
