Troy Police Investigating Vandalism Spree
TROY -- Troy police say Tuesday morning they received about seven calls of vandalism in the city. This car was one of many properties and vehicles that were spray painted. Police said they saw swastikas, pornographic images and other generic symbols.
"There have been about 10 incidents this month," said Troy Police Captain Joe Long.
"It's coming off, but not very easy. I took the scratchpad to it and it's kind of scratching my paint up," said Troy resident Tammy Hutchinson who wasn't having very much luck removing a line of spray paint from her car.
And at several locations across town from boats to businesses, you can see the work of the Vandals.
"I have some things I have to do this morning it took me 45 minutes to get it cleaned up," said Troy business owner Connor Haren. "I was lucky he was able to get the graffiti off."
But the problem didn't start this morning. We spoke with the family that owns a garage that they say Vandals spray painted last week. They tried to get it off but there still some residue left.
"I'm just kind of disgusted more or less," said Haren. "I was thinking people in this neighborhood would be a little better than that."
But apparently they're not. Troy police say they received about ten calls of vandalism this month.
Earlier this summer police arrested a group of kids who vandalized a local skate park. Troy students resume school tomorrow, but police are not certain if kids were responsible for this mornings vandalism.
"It makes me feel vulnerable," said Hutchinson. "I don't have a garage that I can park in. I'm parking on the street and you have young kids or young adults who just don't respect people's private things. It's just kind of ridiculous so hopefully they can find out who did it and they can pay for the damages caused."
Neighbors say they heard what sounded like kids running around 4:00 a.m. this morning. Police ask that you contact them if you heard or saw anything overnight that can help get these vandals off the streets.
One of the nearby businesses says they may have surveillance video that they will hand off to police. We will check in with police tomorrow to see if that video is available.
