Multiple Grand Valley homes struck by paintballs

By  | 

CLIFTON, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- Multiple Grand Junction residents woke up Monday morning to paintball marks all over their homes and cars.

For some it was easy enough to clean up but others now have to pay for the damages.

“Walked out to check the mail came out and I walked around this way of my truck and noticed, I usually like to look at it just in case and noticed there was a paintball that hit my truck,” said Mickey Clark, paintball victim.

Reports of green paintball markings were coming from across Clifton. Some near D ½ and Duffy, others near Patterson and 30 road, and some near F ¼.

“Everything is okay just a little paint, it’s not dented I’m glad they didn't get the glass because I probably would have been a little irritated by that,” said Clark.

Now sick of the green, it was time to clean for Mickey.

"My wife, she got on Facebook just kind of looking around at the classifieds and noticed that other people had issues so she commented on there and said my truck was hit, there was a lot worse I heard it had actually broke some glass,” said Clark.

Luckily for Mickey the damage wasn’t permanent. He was able to scrub the paint off his truck and garage.

"We've lived in this house for almost two years, it’s been really quiet, everyone is really nice around here and no issues whatsoever, this is the first time,” said Clark.
