More than a dozen cars with smashed out windows and now police warn neighbors in the Mountain Shadows area that these vandals will likely strike again. It’s been happening over the past month.

Bill Wysong knows first-hand. He is still picking up the pieces literally. Three cars at his house were apparently a target for vandalism. "A total of 4 windows," Wysong told us.

The vandals struck twice in two weeks. The first time, they smashed out the window on Wysong's truck and Explorer. Wysong replaced the Explorer's window, but the vandals struck again. "They were rocks of this size. I still find glass in the cars and on the driveway."

The vandals didn't take anything out of the cars except they cost Wysong $2600 in damage. Colorado Springs Police Officer David Husted said, "It appears it’s probably kids walking down street late at night."

The vandals have hit at least a dozen other homes in the neighborhood and cops said once they're caught, they'll face felony charges.

In the meantime, Wysong isn’t not taking any chances. "I’m cleaning out the garage, making room, so I could get the cars in the garage."

If you have any information about this vandalism, call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP. Remember, your anonymous tip could earn you a cash reward.
