On Saturday, Oct. 13, at 8:05 a.m., Oro Valley police responded to a house on the 1400 block of East Ganymede Drive in response to vandalism. Police were told someone threw a pumpkin through the garage window, which caused additional damage to a 1966 Corvette parked inside. The pumpkin, which was already put in a trash can when police arrived, appeared to have hit and broken a small window on the garage door, then rolled down the driveway and into the street. There was a trail of pumpkin seeds leading from the garage, down the driveway to the middle of the street. In the garage, the newly painted car had two chips in the paint from broken glass falling on it. It is estimated that it will cost $1,000 to fix both the window and the paint on the car.
