Crime: Target Practice By A Budding Jackson Pollock?

Also, a woman claims she was strangled and some kids get noticed hanging out at a school.

A woman contacted the Orange County Sheriff's Department late Friday to report that her house had been shot up—with paintballs.

According to the blotter of the OCSD, the woman contacted police services at about 10:30 p.m., to report her house had been used for target practice—or maybe it was just collateral damage. Nevertheless, she didn't want the new paint job and it was likely not in a color allowed by the HOA. 

She figured it was from a loud party down the street. She didn't want the culprits prosecuted.

The call was made at 10:29 p.m., from the 32600 block of Larkgrove Circle.

Wife claims she was strangled

A woman gasping for air called 9-1-1 claiming she had just been choked by her husband and couldn't breathe from the alleged strangulation. The man, Scott Kelly Schmidt, 45, drove away from the scene but was found by deputies and placed under arrest and is held on $50,000 bail.

They're a little old for the goods

A caller reported three juveniles, about 15 years of age, were removing toys from Montessori at the Park. Although deputies were unable to locate the boys, who were wearing gray hoodies, there was no financial loss. The call was made Friday, 8:31 p.m., from the 21700 block of Buena Suerte.
