Waco Police are investigating vandalism that happened overnight on Sunday in a far West Waco neighborhood.

According to Waco Police, eight cars were vandalized in several streets at the Sendero Springs subdivision, including Sendero Lane and Burling Street. In addition, a garage door and a stop sign were also spray painted with the text "boonk."

Several of those affected told News Channel 25 they were able to remove the spray paint without causing damage to their vehicles.

Kecha Ewing who lives on Burling Street wasn't a victim of this particular vandalism. However, she said in the past two months, some items or money have gone missing from her home.

"This is not normal and then I go in my cup car, stuff has been moved and then in my backyard, things have been knocked over," Ewing said. 

In addition, she said she found items on her back porch spraypainted a few weeks back. 

 "I have a trampoline, it was spraypainted. I have where they spraypainted the boxes, stuff that I had back there," Ewing said.

She didn't report those incidents to police but hearing about the recent vandalism concerns her.

"I don't feel safe. I don't know if it's someone who stays here or outside the community. I don't know if it's adults or kids and not knowing is the scary part," Ewing said.

Waco Police Spokesman Sgt. Patrick Swanton advises neighbors to remain vigilant.

"Keep an eye on your neighborhood. If you see suspicious activity, contact 911," Swanton said.

He said there are no suspects and no arrests have been made yet. If caught, those responsible would be charged with criminal mischief.
