Carrollton Police Want Vandals to Face Felony Charges

Carrollton police want victims of a recent vandalism spree to turn in their repair bills so police can consider the crimes a felony.

Police said investigators believe the same people damaged more than 100 vehicles two weeks ago.

Officer Jon Stovall said police are asking affected car owners to bring in their auto repair receipts.

“The problem we have right now is each individual offense by itself is a misdemeanor, so we have to aggregate those totals together, and we need the owners to bring repair estimates to us, and then we put those together,” he said. “And once we get to a $20,000 level, that will make it a felony.”

Stovall said the vandals slashed tires, smashed windows and shattered mirrors.

“They weren’t out there to steal from these vehicles,” he said. “They weren’t out there to burglarize from them. They were just out there just to be malicious. These people should be responsible for what they have done.”

Stovall said the National Insurance Crime Bureau would offer reward money if the crime becomes a felony, which would be one more thing that could help solve the case.
