Fitchburg officers have spent much of Monday morning investigating a vandalism spree that occurred overnight in the Seminole Hills Neighborhood. Officers have taken at least ten reports of criminal damage to property, including slashed vehicle tires, symbols carved into cars, cut hoses, and damaged patio furniture. Incidents have been reported on Osmundesn Road, Tree Line Drive, Oak Leaf Circle, and Marsh View Court.
The investigation so far indicates the reported incidents likely occurred early Monday morning. Although some damage included Swastikas and other symbols, the incidents do not appear to be targeted or hate-based.
The investigation into the spree is active, with officers canvassing the neighborhood for additional evidence, including video footage.
Anyone with video footage that may contain a suspect(s) or suspicious activity from Monday morning in the Seminole Hills Neighborhood is asked to contact the Fitchburg Police Department. Residents who have yet to report damage to their property should also contact the Fitchburg Police Department as soon as possible.
