Cops seek tips on who shot out windows of 40 cars

The Cincinnati Enquirer

SHARONVILLE - Police in two communities are looking for those who took aim at about 40 cars, shooting out vehicle windows early Wednesday.

The windows were damaged with a BB or pellet gun, police said.

About 35 cars were damaged in Sharonville and six more in a Springdale neighborhood that borders Sharonville. Police think the damage was done between 1:30 and 4:30 a.m.

While the Springdale damage was concentrated in one subdivision, Sharonville police found broken car windows all over their city.

"Ours were spread in the residential areas as well as some of the industrial areas," Sharonville Police Lt. John Cook said. "We believe they were driving down the street in a car, shooting as they drove down the road."

There were no reported injuries. The damage could reach $6,000, officers said. Police have no suspects and few leads, Lt. Cook said.

Anyone with information about the vandalism is asked to call Sharonville police at 563-1147 or Springdale police at 346-5760.
