Two separate strings of vandalism in Westminster Sunday night have police hunting for suspects and offering a cash reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the vandals.
Eight cars were vandalized along the South alley in the area of Westminster Avenue Sunday night, Oct. 21, police said. Each car had one flat tire and police said evidence at the scene indicates that the tires had been cut with a sharp object.
The second series of cases occurred on several side streets in the area of Uniontown Road and Windsor Road, according to a police report. A total of three cars were damaged when someone scratched the paint on the driver’s side of the vehicles, which were parked along the roadway overnight. The total damage in these three cases is estimated at more than $3,000, police said.
Police said they do not believe the two series of cases are connected.
A $250 cash reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for these acts of vandalism. Those living in these areas are asked to remain vigilant and to report all suspicious activities to the Police Department by calling “911” or (410) 848-4646.
Anyone with information or questions about these cases should contact Captain Nancy Yeager of the Westminster Police Department at (410) 848-4280. Information may also be provided anonymously by contacting the Confidential Tip Line at (410) 857-8477.
