Police Investigate More Overnight Car Vandalism Cases

By  | 

Lincoln Police are searching for suspects after criminals hit the Black Sands Apartments for the second time in as many weeks.

Police say someone broke into at least six vehicles in the parking lot around 3 a.m. Thursday morning.

Sergeant Terrance Vernon says one car had its windows smashed.

"It is the 85th larceny from autos since Thanksgiving in Northwest Lincoln. It's the 25th case of vandalism in that area since Thanksgiving," said Officer Katie Flood.

Witnesses report seeing a red, Ford Mustang with a loud exhaust leaving the complex after a car alarm went off.

Police believe this may be related to other vandalism cases throughout the city. Residents at the Black Sands Apartments say repairs are going to be expensive and inconvenient for some.

"It's very frustrating. Now, I have to drive two hours listening to plastic blow," said Allie Exstrom who was a victim of the vandalism. Her drivers side window was smashed in the early morning spree.

"Now I have to pay a $200.00 bill to get my window repaired. It's frustrating and unnecessary," said Jenn White who was also a victim of the vandalism.
