Authorities were called to the Clark gas station, 404 E. Washington St., Wednesday morning after the attendant found the front door glass had been broken out upon arrival at the business that morning.

Nothing appeared disturbed inside the building, police said.

Clark officials were uncertain if anything was missing in the incident.

Officer Albert Epple and Det. Randy Seipel investigated.

Meanwhile, the theft of a pickup truck was reported at the Walmart superstore parking lot.

Travis Camden told GPD Chief Tom Sutherlin that he left his red 1992 Chevrolet truck parked at Walmart about 8:30 p.m. Saturday but upon returning to pick it up on Sunday, the vehicle was gone.

The truck was valued at $3,500.

A Putnam County Operation Life ambulance was involved in a minor accident Monday morning on U.S. 231 south.

Sgt. Terry Eastham reported that the 2010 Chevrolet ambulance, driven by Melanie Smith, 46, Greencastle, was on an emergency run through the U.S. 231 construction zone when it clipped the mirror on a 2004 Mitsubishi box truck, driven by Mark Austin, 41, Clinton.

Smith said she misjudged the distance between the truck, which had pulled over for the ambulance to pass, and the traffic barrels in the construction zone.

Total damage in the 11:02 a.m. mishap was listed at $1,000-$2,500.

A two-car accident Saturday resulted in property damage and a traffic citation, Greencastle City Police reported.

Sgt. Chris Jones reported that a 2002 Chevrolet Impala, driven by Martha Mandeco, 68, Roachdale, was going the wrong way on a one-way street, and entered the path of the Hurst car, resulting in a collision.
