COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS, Utah (ABC4 News) – Officials with the Cottonwood Heights Police are offering $500 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person(s) responsible for shooting out several car windows.
Investigative Seargent Ken Daily with the Cottonwood Heights Police Department says there have been 11 reported cases of car windows being shot out on Saturday night into Sunday by what police believe to be a pellet or BB gun.
Sgt. Daily says there have also been possible reports in Sandy. He says each case will be fully investigated but that available information is limited.
“We will follow up on any and all tips reports because we know this is quite a crime that costs people, thousands,” Sgt. Daily says. “We like to help solve that problem.”
Sgt. Daily says the case reports are showing residents saw a dark-colored Sudan.
“There is a few reports from victims they are saying they heard the suspect car, or what they assume is the suspect car, speeding through the area and the occupants of the car were laughing,” Sgt. Daily says.
Jazmin Mendoza is the owner of one of the 11 cars that were vandalized. She says she feels getting the community involved is going to help figure out who did this damage.
“I’m guessing whoever did it doesn’t actually realize there are people that they’re hurting and that this is the way I have to get to work and I’m not able to do that until this is fixed,” Mendoza says.
Sgt. Daily says they don’t have any leads yet on who it might be. Mendoza wished whoever the vandals are realized the effects they caused on human lives.
“They don’t realize, for this, it’s probably like ‘oh this is so funny, we’re just like pranking a bunch of people.’ It’s not. It costs money and it costs time.”
Cottonwood Heights Police Department is asking anyone with information to call 801-840-4000.
