TARRANT COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) – Some Fort Worth homeowners are angry and left adding up the cost of damage after an area crime spree left more than a dozen cars damaged.
Kim Warner explained what the vandal/vandals did to her vehicle. “It cracked about right here and right on the other side,” she said pointing to a busted window.
On Friday Warner said she came home from work to find pieces of glass all over her driveway. There was a gaping hole her car’s back windshield.
Besides the fact that committing a crime is wrong, Warner just doesn’t understand why the criminal/criminals chose to bust out windows. “There was nothing to take. It was almost like they were breaking it to breaking it.”
Warner lives in the Saratoga subdivision. But the same thing happened to Megan Childress in the Rolling Meadows subdivision. At first, the college student thought it was a personal attack. “I have a Hilary Clinton sticker and I thought it was targeted because of it.”
Including the two aforementioned neighborhoods and the Timberland Estates subdivision, officials say there have been a total of 14 police reports filed. All of the incidents involved crimes that happened between 10 a.m. Thursday and 5 p.m. Friday.
Police believe the windows may have been shattered using a pellet or BB gun.
There are those that believe the vandalism is the action of a kid playing a prank. Even if that is the case, Warner says she’s not laughing. The damage to her vehicle was substantial. “$900 plus labor. $1000 is not a cheap repair.”
