"A total of nine vehicles parked along the odd-numbered address side of Dunwoody Road were scratched with a key along their doors." Jus' wondering... I can understand the ease with which it was determined the number of cars that were damaged and that they were all on the same odd-numbered side of the street, but one has to wonder how it is known that a key was the item used to scratch the car doors? Could it not have been a screwdriver, a knife blade, or maybe a rusty nail picked up off the street? Was it determined by the crime lab or just a WAG? Also, were the scratches really restricted to the doors leaving the front and rear fenders untouched? That seems so unlikely for anyone bent on doing such damage. Jus' wondering...
