The Hewitt Police Department is dealing with two cases of vandalism on Sunday. They believe the cases are connected.

According to Hewitt Police, the vandalism happened between 3 a.m. to 7 or 8 a.m. They had two victims come forward saying their cars were spray-painted.

One incident happened on Oxford Hill and the other was on East Chapman.

Trey Allen noticed his car had been spray-painted when he pulled out of his driveway to go church. 

"Disbelief, shock, kind of chuckled. I was like 'I can't believe this is happening,'" Allen said. "I knew it was going to be a long day of getting that off the car and dealing with all the police reports and stuff like that."

He said it took three hours to scrub off the bright colors that were swirled across his car. However, paint is still visible on the rubber trim and handles.

Allen hopes the people responsible for the damage turn themselves in. He said he hopes they right their wrong.

"Their story doesn't have to end like this," Allen said. "They can be heroes in some kind of way. They can come forward and say 'we did this.'" 

There are no details on the suspects. Police said there was nothing written on the vehicles, just random spraying. They do not have a motive for the crime.

Chief Devlin said Waco police are dealing with other cases of vandalism that they believe are related as well.
