Bad deal

9:22 p.m. — 100 block of South Nova Road, Ormond Beach

Fraud. Police responded to a local fast food restaurant after receiving a report that an individual tried to pay with a fake $50 bill.

Once the reporting officer arrived, the manager told her that two men entered the restaurant, and one of them approached the counter and ordered one item. When he handed the cashier the fake bill, and she informed him that it was counterfeit, the man told the cashier that he had gotten the bill from his weed dealer, according to a police report. The men then left. 

The manager told police that the man didn't attempt to retrieve the fake bill and since the restaurant wasn't defrauded, no charges would be pursued.

Mystery on the roof

3:23 p.m. — 100 block of East Granada Boulevard, Ormond Beach

Vandalism. A local property owner called police after a tenant informed her of damage sustained to the edge of the roof sometime that weekend.

According to a police report, the damage appeared to have been from a "large object striking the roof," and was about 10 feet high from the ground. The property owner showed the reporting officer photos of wet tire marks on the pavement near the damage, but police weren't able to garner much information from the photos.

Police determined that it could be presumed that a large vehicle caused the damage, but could not confirm this due to the lack of evidence.

BB gun fired

11:38 p.m. — Intersection of East Granada Boulevard and John Anderson Drive, Ormond Beach

Shooting without injury. A 66-year-old Ormond Beach man and two passengers were driving east on the Granada bridge when they heard a loud pop and saw the driver's side front window shatter.

According to a police report, the man, who was in the driver's seat, was struck by the glass, but was not injured. The window was shattered, but mostly intact when police arrived at the scene. The reporting officer spotted an impact mark that he determined to have been caused by a BB gun pellet or other similar object.

No one inside the car saw where the shot came from, nor who fired it. If a suspect is found, the man wished to press charges.
