At least 18 cars damaged by vandals in Cary neighborhood, police say

Police are asking for the public’s assistance in finding two suspects who caused significant damage to at least 18 vehicles over the weekend in a Cary neighborhood.

The Cary Police Department said the vandals struck during the evening hours on Friday and Saturday.

Cary Deputy Police Chief Scott Naydenoff said preliminary information indicates at least two subjects were walking through a residential area.

The subjects would approach vehicles parked outside and etch words into the vehicle paint with an unknown object, Naydenoff said.

The area impacted by these incidents includes residential streets bordered by Three Oaks Road to the north, Wooded Knoll Drive to the south, Montana Drive to the west, and Lyons Ridge Drive to the east.
