Dozens of Southern California cars vandalized
COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities in Los Angeles and Orange counties are looking for vandals who damaged more than 60 cars in two weekend crime sprees.
Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials say vandals using pellet guns shattered windows of at least 30 parked cars, along with two business windows, between late Saturday night and Sunday morning in Lancaster.
In Orange County, police in Costa Mesa say 31 cars, three lighting fixtures and an American flag were vandalized with spray paint early Sunday morning. Vandals also apparently sprayed a garage and set a car on fire.
Police say the cars were painted with lines but some also had smiley faces and the words “ha ha.”
No arrests have been made in either case.
