Vandals Target Vehicles In Southeast Denver
DENVER (CBS4) – Police are investigating a string of vandalism in southeast Denver.
Police said criminals broke windows and slashed the tires of at least 34 vehicles. They were all parked in the area from Hampden to Iliff and from Monaco to Yosemite.
Police say they have no suspects but a lot of damaged cars.
Patrick Morgan’s car had a broken sunroof and back window.
“It doesn’t make you feel good, my wife was angry about it and luckily our insurance will cover it,” Morgan said.
But not everyone is covered. One car had brand new tires and the owner said insurance won’t cover replacements. Her boyfriend was lucky his car didn’t get hit as well.
“I parked on the other side, so my car right over there didn’t get slashed — thank God,” he said.
Denver police say the vandalism happened between 10 p.m. Tuesday and 4 a.m. Wednesday.
Nineteen vehicles ended up with slashed tires and another 15 with broken windows. The cars were parked along residential streets.
Chelsea Eads’ car also had new tires and had to be towed.
“We’re just a middle class neighborhood … these are moms and grandparents and people who work hard for their money,” Eads said.
A nearby residential neighborhood was also hit. Residents there say some homeowners have surveillance cameras and they hope it will show the suspects.
