    Paul Brooke saw a man he knew come onto his Indian Wells Highway property early on Saturday morning. Mr. Brooke told police he heard the sound of glass breaking and then watched as the man ran away. He found the back window of his 2008 Ford pickup truck smashed. Mr. Brooke said he would not press charges if the vandal agreed to pay for the damage, which, after being confronted by the police, he agreed to do.
