Vandals Target Cars, Buses In Centennial Neighborhood
CENTENNIAL, Colo. (CBS4) – There was a rude awakening for a Centennial neighborhood Sunday morning. Overnight tires on 50 vehicles were slashed and buses belonging to a child care center were also damaged.
The vehicles were all located in the Creekside at the Farms neighborhood, east of Orchard and south of Tower Road.
Police want to talk to some teens connected to a black SUV and silver Saab who may have some knowledge.
Windows on the child care center buses were smashed through. The sheriff’s office said the vandals went inside the buses and tossed the contents of first aid kits and damaged the dashboards. The day care is saying it will need to rent buses for Monday.
“Seeing the windows smashed out and just the utter destruction inside; I have no comprehension of why. This is just so unnecessary, it transports little kids,” Karri Haughsness with Belles & Beaus said.
Neighbors were just as exasperated to see the damage. The sheriff’s office said only tires were slashed on vehicles in the neighborhood. The first reports of vandalism came in at 7 a.m., but it’s believed the attack took place in the early morning hours when most people were sleeping.
The Arapahoe sheriff is offering a cash reward for information. The amount is based on the quality of the information.
The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office is still trying to solve another vandalism case from May of last year in the South Creek neighborhood. It’s four miles from the neighborhood that was vandalized Sunday morning.
