A large number of car windows were broken, along with one home, early last Friday morning
BATTLE GROUND — A new video has been released, showing a vehicle of interest in a vandalism spree that damaged a number of vehicles, as well as at least one house last Friday morning. This second video also shows two people who may have been involved in the crime spree.
People all around Battle Ground woke up June 8 to find their car windows smashed. In some cases recycle bins left out the night before appeared to have been used to cause the damage. In a video first released on Saturday, a dark-colored full-size SUV is seen driving by one area where damage was done. A clearer video, shot what appears to be later in the morning, shows the same vehicle. It appears white plastic covers the rear passenger-side window of the vehicle. In this most recent video, two people are seen (around the 30 second mark). One grabs something from a nearby home and runs off, then the other individual returns to throw something at the home where the camera is, hitting the window.
A number of people on Facebook said they believed the vandalism to be connected to senior graduation celebrations that had gotten out of hand.
Battle Ground police are hoping someone recognizes the vehicle or individuals caught on camera. They’re also asking anyone in a neighborhood where damage occurred to check their own security camera footage to see if it might help. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Sgt. Kim Armstrong at (360) 342-5252, or by e-mail: [email protected]. Anonymous tips can be reported at www.cityofbg.org/tips.
