COMMERCE — Crime scene tape in front of the Spot in downtown Commerce may seem like an indication of a violent crime, but in reality it is merely to protect evidence from a criminal mischief incident that took place Wednesday night. According to Commerce Police Chief Kerry Crews, a car that was parked on Bonham Street on the corner from the Spot had windows broken. The suspect sustained a cut, and the police used the crime scene tape to protect a blood trail as evidence. No arrests related to the incident have been made
