A rude awaking Friday morning for a lot of car owners on the north side of Colorado Springs.

Police say at least 50 people had their car windows smashed in during an apparent vandalism spree.

Police say the suspects smashed windows with a baseball bat and the majority of the vandalism took place in the area of Vickers Road and Rangewood and Dublin Boulevard and Union early Friday morning.

Police say the suspects were driving a white 1987 Mazda 626.
If your car is among the many vandalized Friday morning you are asked to contact police or if you have any information on the suspects contact crimestoppers at 634-STOP.

    db, most likely more than what would be received in restitution.

    For those of you waiting for restitution, have any of you looked into what it would take to file a civil suit in small claims court?

    Anonymous- What is not stolen is at times destroyed. Sometimes there is anger behind destruction. Why are people forced to alter their property in order to protect it?

    If they catch those SOB they need to go to AZ where that tough sherrif is the one that makes you wear PINK inmate outfit, he seems to be getting the job done, unlike CSPD or the DA .

    Bj, kids with parents on welfare are more apt to steal, not destroy. These kids have no idea about people having to work hard for their possesions because their parents are rich and give them whatever they want. Bill, if they keep smashing your mailbox build a steel frame inside of it like many of us did in the Black Forest and hope you don't get sued by the kid who shatters his arm and bat on your mailbox! The mailbox smashings have stopped up here by the way!

    I had my car messed with 4 months ago, and the little punks where caught by the police while they were doing it. The court system is so backed up that I think I will never get payment for the damages they did. But I still get letters every month saying they are in pre-trial conference. What a waste of time and effort. You can't be made right now a days.

    Bill it won't do any good to catch these losers. The D.A.'S may be out not getting a ticket, and they still have that revolving door. Seems like they have that catch and release thing going on. The other scenerio might be the parents won't pay monetary restitution because they are on welfare or are to busy blaming society for their screwed up off spring issues.I didn't even know C/S has law enforcement. WoW!

    Well stated Brian. Maybe more of us need to make an online citizens complaint at http://www.springsgov.com

    I think we need more traffic control officers. That will solve this.
