Teen vandals strike cars -- Edmond, OK

Edmond police spent a lot of time this weekend in The Trails housing addition taking reports on more than 15 cases of vandalism.

This is one of more than a dozen tires damaged by vandals.

Damage estimated at more than $5,000 was reported to vehicles and houses in this west Edmond neighborhood.

Police think there are other incidences of vandalism that have not been reported yet, said Glynda Chu, Edmond Police Department spokeswomen.

"Parents need to know where their kids are,” Chu said. "They made the whole neighborhood sick. You have got to give your kids something to do and make sure they are supervised.”

Three juveniles were arrested in connection with a window being shot out at a home at 2600 Jaclyns Trail. The teens were 14 and 15 years old. They admitted to a single vandalism case, but denied any others, Chu said.

The teens, who attend Star Spencer, Millwood and Midwest City high schools, were arrested on vandalism complaints. Officers on Sunday found 11 holes in a window pane at the house and numerous BBs on the ground underneath the window, according to a police report released Monday.

Other incidents were reported Saturday morning. There were 15 tires punctured, one rear windshield smashed, one rear window broken, four windows to houses damaged and a vehicle that had been keyed.

The incidents occurred on Woodhollow Trail, Jills Trail, Jaclyns Trail and Julies Trail. The housing addition is between Santa Fe and Western avenues and Edmond and Danforth roads.

"Some of the vehicles had to be towed,” Chu said. "The tires are just trashed. It is just sad.”
