Over the course of the last few weeks, residents in the Winchester Estates area were hit by a rash of  car windows being shot out.  During the first weekend in April, Eudora police received 16 separate reports of vandalism in the neighborhood. This was not the first wave of car vandalism. Eudora Police Chief Bill Edwards stated that 5 other reports came in the weekend prior to that.

Chief Edwards today announced that two suspects were arrested by officers on Friday and that the Department has filed affidavits with the Douglas County District Attorney for charges against two other suspects.  Edwards said  that they are not releasing the names of the four suspects as all four are juveniles.

Edwards credited the work of Officer Daniel Flick and Sergeant Tom Willis who investigated the case which led to the arrests and charges against the suspects.

In other Police Department news, Edwards said that Eudora Police and Eudora High School staff  with the assistance of the Shawnee Police Department K-9 Unit conducted a sweep of the High School locker areas on Friday looking for drug alerts.

“The dogs found nothing of significance and we were in and out of the school in less than an hour,” Edwards told us.

The search was conducted during the Noon hour on Friday.
