Vandals target Jackson car, store windows

Tuesday, October 14, 2003

Jackson police are hoping residents can help pinpoint a suspect in a rash of broken windows and bring an end to the nighttime hail of steel ball bearings, said Lt. Rodney Barnes.

Police believe the perpetrators may be using a sling shot while they either drive by or walk by their targets -- usually businesses and parked vehicles. Many businesses have been struck multiple times, Barnes said.

The incidents do not happen every night, but for the last two weeks, all of the vandalism has been committed after business hours.

On Saturday alone, police responded to eight reports of property damage along Main Street, East Lane and Adams Street. Previous reports have mostly originated from Jackson Boulevard.
