Police: Man throws rocks, shoots arrow into auto dealership lot

Published On: Nov 28 2012 03:26:40 PM CST
MADISON, Wis. -

Madison police said they are investigating reports of a man causing a series of problems at an auto dealership lot.

An employee at Kayser Ford, 2303 W. Beltline Highway, contacted the Madison police Monday morning to report problems.

The employee said a man was throwing rocks, from an adjoining property, towards the business Monday morning. No damage was reported; however, the employee said the rock thrower was also spotted this past Saturday afternoon. One tossed rock broke the rear windshield of a 2013 Lincoln, causing an estimated $4,000 damage, according to a Madison Police Department incident report.

Police said the employee believes the same man shot an arrow onto the Kayser lot last Wednesday morning. That incident was reported to police at the time.

No suspect has been identified and no motivation for the crimes is known, police said.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
