On 01.29.2013 at 0014 hours the Northern York County Regional Police Department responded to the 2900 block of Village Square Drive in Dover Township after the homeowner reported that someone had shot a projectile into the home.

Responding Officers found that subjects had fired a potato at the home from an unknown type weapon.  The potato entered the front of the home, penetrating the exterior and interior wall.  The potato entered into a room occupied by two adults and their two month old child.  No one was injured.

While Officers were on scene of the Village Square Drive incident a second call came in from the 3000 block of Hadley Drive.  On Hadley Drive the subjects  fired a potato at the rear of an unoccupied minivan.  The minivan sustained minor damage in the attack.
