Pana Police believe they have solved a series of crimes going back to last year. According to reports, Officer Daniel Bland gets most of the credit for arresting a 15-year-old in connection to a series of tire slashings that took place in late November and early December. Officer Bland was reportedly working on another case in which the 15-year-old suspect was being interviewed. The juvenile reportedly admitted the crimes to Officer Bland. The information will be forwarded to the Christian County State’s Attorney’s office, along with a request that a juvenile petition be filed.
Police say the 15-year-old punctured 79 tires on a total of 47 vehicles in Pana on November 30th and December 1st of last year.
