Vandals shoot out windows, leave car on blocks

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is investigating several bold acts of vandalism.

Officers were called to the 8300 block of Punto Alto Drive. A trail of vehicles there were left with shattered windows.

Police determined the suspects used a BB gun to blast out the windows on the passenger and driver sides.

“I’ve been living here for four years and nothing like this has happen before,” said Tequila House, whose driver side window had been shot out.

So far, investigators have no suspects and no descriptions of people involved.

Further north in the Irvington neighborhood, a woman stepped outside to find her 2014 Malibu rental on concrete blocks. Vandals stripped the four-door sedan of its wheels and rims.

A neighbor told police she heard a strange noise around 2 o’clock Tuesday morning near the scene of the crime but she didn’t think much about it.

Police have no suspects in that case.

” I was in shock to the point of disbelief,” said September Stoops, who now has to pay a $250 deductible to replace the tires and rims.

24-Hour News 8 found out it would cost nearly $600 to replace all four tires and rims on the Chevy Malibu if you don’t have insurance.

According to IMPD, there’s been no recent trend of tire or rim thefts in the city.

However, some drivers purchase wheel locks or wheel clamps for as low as $30. Wheels that have those locking devices are hard to take off if you don’t have the proper key.
