Vandals Target Over a Dozen Cars in Murphy Village

web posted January 14, 2014

MURPHY VILLAGE Murphy Village residents awoke Sunday morning to discover their vehicles being targeted by vandals overnight resulting in busted windows and dents to at least 13 vehicles. After a deputy arrived at the scene of the first resident, it was soon discovered that the damages were widespread in the area and an investigator was called to process the assorted crime scenes. Another resident reported two suspects in his yard looking in his truck around 5:20 am.

A Blanche Street man reported hearing a noise outside his home around 5:20 am and when he went to check on it he saw a "skinny" while male driving a black Ford Ranger and a black male with a hoodie looking in the bed of his truck where tools are stored. When he went outside the two fled the scene in the truck.

The next caller reported the first of the damages to vehicles that was believed to have taken place between 3 am and 6 am Sunday, though the report to the Sheriff's Office did not come until three hours later.

The majority of the reports covered windows broken out of the vehicles and damages to the doors or other parts of the car, including one that also had "silly string" sprayed on the vehicle. There were no reports of stolen property in 12 pages of incident reports on the case. 

The information on all of the vehicles was gathered by the deputy and turned over to the on-scene investigator.
