Police: Six Cars Found Vandalized In Nassau County

MERRICK, NY (CBSNewYork) - Police in Nassau County are investigating after several cars were found vandalized in Merrick.

LISTEN: WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs reports


Investigators say a half-dozen vehicles parked in front of homes were found damaged Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. Officials say all of the vehicles had at least one window smashed.

This latest incident comes just days after 21 cars were found vandalized a few miles away in Massapequa.

The attacks have many residents feeling vulnerable.

"I park in front of my house. I just hope nobody comes down my block and does it," one man told WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs. "There's really nothing else I can do."

But others say they're not that worried.

"They will get caught eventually because they're going to slip up," one resident said.

Police are investigating. If you have any information, call Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 800-244-TIPS.
