Also on April 22,  a man driving driving east on East Eisenhower Boulevard approaching North Cleveland Avenue in Loveland at 9:50 p.m. called police and said he had heard a "pop" and his rear window was shattered.

One week ago, deputies with the Larimer County Sheriff's Office were transporting three inmates in a van from the Jefferson County Detention Center to the Larimer County Jail.

At 11:15 a.m. on Interstate 25 just north of Mead, the right passenger window of the transport van shattered.

No one was injured.

"The damage to the window is consistent with that caused by some form of projectile designed to break glass," officials said.

No witnesses or suspects were located.
