Car Vandalism Hits Avenues, Police Seek Info on Suspects

The Salt City Police Department is asking the public for information leading to the arrest or identity of individuals involved in as many as 50 cases of car vandalism in the Avenues neighborhood.

All of the cases occurred between Saturday night and Sunday morning, February 6-7, 2010, and involved shattered vehicle windows. While most victims did not report suspects or witnesses, one victim saw a red Nissan, possibly a Maxima, drive slowly past the scene of damaged vehicles. Whether that car is involved is still under investigation.

Investigators also ask that residents of the area report any unusual activity.

Anyone with information about this rash of vandalism is asked to contact the Salt Lake City Police Department at (801) 799-3000. Callers may remain anonymous. Please reference case# 10-22978.
