Jacksonville police say they have caught the person who allegedly shot windows out of cars, in multiple recent incidents of property being damaged, with a pellet gun or a BB gun.

19 year old Cory A. Floyd, of 342 West State Street, was booked at the Morgan County Detention Facility just before 9 Friday morning on five charges of criminal damage to property.

A post to the Morgan-Scott Crime Stoppers Facebook page Monday morning detailed a report. “At approximately 7:45pm on Saturday, March 23rd while traveling westbound in the 300 block of West State Street, a vehicle had it’s back windshield shattered by, in all probability, a BB Gun. It should be added that an infant was a passenger in the Vehicle at the time, who was sitting in a rear facing car seat. It should further be noted that JPD received two other reports of vehicle damage by a BB Gun in the same area on the previous evening.”

Floyd has been charged with four counts of criminal damage to property under $500 and one count of criminal damage to property over $500. Floyd remains in custody.
