Blotter: Police investigating report of damage to vehicle

A 28-year-old woman reported to Denton police Friday morning that she believes her ex-boyfriend damaged her vehicle.

Police said the woman reported three of her tires were slashed in the 3500 block of East McKinney Street sometime overnight Thursday and she believes it was her ex-boyfriend because he was mad at her.

According to reports, the woman also alleged the ex-boyfriend might have put something in her gas tank, since her car isn’t running well like it used to.

The investigation is ongoing and no charges have yet been filed, police said.
