TPD seemed to be a busy bunch of bees in the early AM today. Sometime between 4-5am, we heard them working a stolen car in the area of Coquina Elementary that had two Black Males on the run. BSCO and K9 assisting.
K9 tracked to the tracks and started south and was shortly joined by Star for a solid 30-40 minutes.
During the search, a number of reports for shots fired came in around Hopkins and Knox. Unrelated.
At 5:15, Starr returned to base and TPD called off the search. Possible suspects were identified but were still at large.
Last night TPD responded to a number of calls involving vandalism from paintballs. Damage including broken windows in the Royal Oak area.
TPD has returned today to canvas the area for possible video.
Paintball guns (Also referred to as Markers) come in many styles and are usually identified by a ‘hopper’ on top that contains the actual paintball (usually a 17mm gelatin shell filled with paint) and a tank that holds either CO2 or Air. These paintballs usually travel at 30fps on unmodified guns and can fire between 5 and 30 or more rounds per second. Because they work off compressed gases, there is not much noise associated with the marker. Some will freeze the paintballs to cause more damage.
