Clarksburg Police are investigating a vandalism string from overnight that left dozens of families with cars they couldn't drive. Around 4 a.m. Wednesday, the first call came in that tires were slashed along Haymond Highway in the Broad Oaks area.
In all, about 12 cars couldn't be driven because of the holes in their tires. Some cars had only one tire slashed, others had two on the same side of the car and even more had tires slashed on both sides of them. Neighbors in the area didn't hear anything and most didn't know it happened until they walked outside.
It wasn't welcome news for many, especially this close to Christmas. Now they're left with wondering how they're going to pay to get their tires repaired. One man said he's already pinching pennies and this is just another thing he has to worry about. he plans on getting a police report and seeing if his insurance will cover the damage.
"I don't even know what to say. It's just a shame that people have to act like that. They're new tires. I just put them on about a month ago. I don't have extra money, I don't have enough money the way it is. I don't know what I'm going to do, it's the only vehicle I have," said Terry Losh, who woke up to find his tires slashed.
Police don't have any suspects and are still investigating this incident. If you have any information, you're asked to call the Clarksburg Police Department Tip-line at 304-624-1625
