At Least 10 Vehicles Damaged In Vandalism Spree

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. - A vandalism spree forced nearly a dozen drivers to make some hard choices this Christmas season after their cars were vandalized.

"I could understand if someone is trying to get something for food, but just out of plain meanness there's no point in it," said Bryan Perry.

Perry's vehicle was about to be towed away when a NewsChannel 5 crew arrived to Swift Drive just one of the areas targeted by the vandals. Vehicle on Richardson Street, Swift Drive, Woodmont Boulevard, Central Avenue, and Cardinal Lane were damaged.

Shannon Jenkins lives right down the street from Perry, his tires were also slashed.

"It kind of brings pain to you a little bit in a way because you can't have anything nice. It seems like anything nice you have, you leave your vehicle out on the street and people are just coming by tearing it apart on you," said Jenkins.

For now, the residents are just hoping police make an arrest sometime soon.

"I've got to pay extra while these kids are out here running around and about," said Jenkins.

The vehicles were all in close proximity, and the spree caused about $5 thousand worth of damage.

If you have any information, Clarksville police ask that you give them a call at 931-645-8477.
