Entry was gained by using a lock-jock or similar tool, according to Ptl. Ramsey. The inside panel of the driver's side door had been forced open, as was the dashboard around where the stereo was mounted.
  
Theft of services


   * JoAnn Allen, manager of The Hair Depot, 1729 Hwy. 19E, reported Tuesday to EPD Ptl. Brooke Mullins that a customer came into the store at 9 a.m. and had her hair cut and colored, then told the manager she had forgotten her checkbook and couldn't pay and would drive home and return with the money. The customer left at 10:29 a.m. and called the store at 11 a.m. to say that she had cut her hand and had to go to the hospital to have it sewn up and would be by later to pay. The manager left the store around noon to go to the bank and spotted the customer at a pet store on Johnson Avenue. When the manager returned to the store, she called the customer again and spoke with her about her bill. The customer told the manager and Ptl. Mullins that she didn't have any money and couldn't pay for the services until Friday. She also told the officer she had placed a call to her lawyer about the incident. When asked her lawyer's name, she couldn't remember. Officers advised the manager of procedures for filing charges.
  
Domestic

   * Penny C. Coffey, 38, 123 Reeser Road, reported Wednesday to EPD Ptl. Jerry Bradley that her 14-year-old son was not allowed to use the computer as punishment for bad behavior. The boy turned it on and when his mother turned it off, he grabbed her by the arms and pushed her around the house. She said he shoved her outside and slammed the door, then punched a hole in the door with his fist, picked up her vacuum cleaner and threw it down the hallway. The juvenile climbed out a window in the hallway before Ptl. Bradley arrived. Coffey was advised to seek a petition to place the juvenile in state custody for unruly behavior.
