At Tuesday night's Clarkstown Town Board Workshop meeting, Clarkstown Police Chief Michael Sullivan gave an update on cars that had recently been vandalized.
"Last Sunday, we received numerous reports, over 20, of criminal mischief in vehicles in New City, Bardonia and the Nanuet area," said Sullivan. "Not all of them, but most of these vehicles were parked on the street. The damages were done mostly with rocks, however, there were some mailboxes taken down and thrown through the windows."
Rocks were used to break windows in at least 15 incidents, according to Sgt. Jo Anne Fratianni.
"The rocks were thrown, sometimes three of them, at cars damaging both the hoods and the doors and breaking the windows. It was pretty much a mess," said Sullivan.
He added that the only report they received was from residents that said they heard some noise around 1 a.m. but they didn't look since they thought it was thunder or fireworks.
"The criminal mischief was along the Middletown road area corridor, but they spread on to Brewery road and down Germonds Road," said Sullivan. "It sounds like a couple of youngsters went on a rampage but that’s what we have so far."
