Double-paned…
7:55 am
A 23/m who works for a business in the 3400 block of S. Hydraulic says there was damage to a large double-paned plate glass window.

Just want my money back…
9:30 am
A 72/f says she had some damage to the siding on her house. She received a check from her insurance company to make the repairs. She was in contact with someone who did good work to a house down the street. So, she hired him and paid him ½ of the cost up front so he could get supplies. She gave him the check back in September, but he never showed up to do the work and won’t answer any of her calls. She is willing to press charges, but really, she just wants her money back so she can pay someone more reputable to do the work.
