SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) – Police are still trying to track down the person or people who smashed or shot out more than 30 car windows last week in Springfield.
Authorities are reviewing surveillance video from neighbors in their search for suspects.
In doorbell camera surveillance footage provided to police, you can hear a “pop“ as a car drives by and a car window is shot out.
According to police, investigators believe that shot came from the vehicle seen driving down the street in the video.
“I think it is childish,“ Allysha Watson, who lives in Springfield, said of the incidents. “I think it is immature. I think it’s unfair to people who go out every day and work hard for their vehicles and the things that they have.“
Watson’s parents live on Corlington Drive, where the doorbell camera video sent to 2 NEWS was taken and several car windows were reportedly broken.
Watson said her ex-husband’s car window was shot out in another location in town.
“For me, as a mother, that’s terrifying,“ she said. “What if my child was in the car? What if my ex-husband was in the car?“
For now, Watson said, she and others in the neighborhood are keeping their cars in the driveway, hoping not to become the next victim.
“They can’t really afford to just go out and have a window replaced just because someone felt like, ‘Let’s go shoot out people’s windows.’ It’s sad.“
There’s no word yet of any suspect description or arrests.
