Posts circulating on social media and in neighborhood watch groups claim three separate drivers discovered bullet holes in their cars after traveling on Ironwood Drive between US-60 and Germann Road.

In all cases, said to have occurred in the last two weeks, the drivers were in white cars, and the incidents happened at night. 

A Pinal County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson said the department is aware of the claims, but none of the potential victims filed a report. PCSO is urging anyone with information to come forward so deputies can investigate. 

“It’s definitely eye-opening to think something like that could be happening out here,” said Todd Asquith, who lives near the alleged incidents. 

A woman who chose not to be identified provided photos to ABC15 showing what appears to be a bullet hole in the side of her SUV. 

She said her husband was driving on Ironwood Drive around 9 p.m. Friday when he heard a pop and assumed he’d collided with road debris. 

He noticed the damage while stopping at a gas station over the weekend. 

Neighbors say dove hunters are active in the area at dawn and dusk and wonder if stray bullets may be to blame.
