More windows shot out in Rutland area

Posted: Updated:
RUTLAND, Vt. -

More residents in Rutland woke up Thursday to shattered car windows, but police say now the vandalism is reaching beyond the city.

City police say they've responded to 30 more calls from residents reporting one of their car windows had been shot out. Police say there were two more rounds of drive-bys Thursday, one in the early morning hours and another in the afternoon. Vermont State Police have also responded to two reports in Center Rutland, and the Rutland County Sheriff's Department has received about 15 reports in West Rutland.

Again, police believe the vandals are simply pulling the trigger of a pellet-type weapon as they drive by cars parked curbside, as nothing has been taken from any of the cars.

Police are asking people to check their personal security cameras. And police in Rutland City are using four vehicles equipped with automated license plate readers to collect data around the city and then are checking that information against the various tips they are continuing to receive to try to establish a possible suspect vehicle.
