Vandals break string of car windows in PT


Between 9 p.m. Dec. 2 and 7:30 a.m. Dec. 3, several cars on Landes Street in Port Townsend were vandalized. Similar incidents elsewhere in the city on other days are suspected to be related.
At least six cars on Landes had windows broken. Damage on some cars was more extensive than others, ranging from a single passenger or driver side window to multiple windows or even front and back windshields. Police estimate the damage across all vehicles at around $6,000 dollars.
The damage is believed to have been caused by a BB or pellet gun, said Port Townsend Police Chief Mike Evans. A small projectile was found imbedded in the broken glass of one car. 
Evans said the motive is unknown, and it does not seem that anything was missing from or disturbed in any of the vehicles.
Between Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, a passenger side window was broken on a car in the 400 block of 26th Street.
The Leader previously reported a case of car window vandalism occurring on the night of Nov. 28 in the 2100 block of Discovery Road.
Again, nothing is known to have been taken from the vehicles.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the Port Townsend Police Department.
