A Sugar Maple Road home equipped with a security camera recently caught footage of a group of teenagers vandalizing a car, with one running up and kicking off the side view mirror, while another slashes the back left tire.
Another neighbor on the street had two tires slashed, while another backed their vehicle over a piece of wood with nails protruding from it, according to a resident on the street who wished to remain anonymous.
Vehicles on Blue Spruce Road and Wolcott Road were also discovered with their tires slashed, the resident said. The incidents occurred at 1 a.m. on Friday, July 20.
Five males are seen in the video. One takes a running jump and kicks the driver's side view mirror, while another quickly slashed the back left tire. Two of them are riding skateboards.
The resident said that a police officer told her St. Bernard's Church had swastikas painted on it the same night. Police reports were filed by all alleged victims on the street.
"It me cost $197 to replace one tire," one resident told Patch. "These teenagers left a lot of damage in their wake and they should be held accountable for their poor choices."
