Police searching for vandals who caused thousands in damages

Posted:
WACO - Police are searching for vandals who have caused several thousand dollars in damages by breaking out car windows in Waco.

Waco officers worked at least 16 cases from Feb. 21 to Feb. 24, where windows were broken out of vehicles. Police believe they are using a BB or pellet gun, or a slingshot, to shoot out windows of parked and unoccupied vehicles.

Police say these incidents have caused several thousand dollars in damages.

Officers were called out to the Northwest Waco area on Friday morning by victims who had their windows broken. Police continued getting calls throughout the weekend. Most of the incidents occurred at night, and in the area bordered by 19th St., to the Chimney Hill Addition, and from Park Lake to Herring Ave.

Police believe the suspect or suspects are driving up to the victim's vehicle and shooting out the windows, then leaving the area before victims can see them and provide a description of the vehicle or a suspect.

Police are asking for the public's help to identify those involved in these incidents. Victims who have not reported similar incidents to police are encouraged to do so.

People can call Detective Eric Hawkins at 750-3611 or Crime Stoppers at 753-HELP (4357) if they have any information about these incidents. Callers can remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward.
