Look out for vehicle vandalism in League City
A rash of vehicle vandalism in League City has police warning residents to be on the watch for suspicious juveniles.
Police Chief Mike Jez said vehicles have been egged, and they've had windows smashed and tires slashed. The incidents have been throughout the city, but mostly on the city's west side, he said.
Police have several suspects, most of which are juveniles, Jez said. More than one group could be responsible for the vandalism, he said.
We think it's young kids up to no good," Jez said. Usually it's a few kids together that are thrill-seeking."
To combat the vandalism, the police department is doing extra patrols, Jez said.
These are someone's children," he said. As a parent if you see anything out of the ordinary in terms of the way your kids are behaving then check it out."
And while the vandals may not realize it, Jez said their actions put them in significant danger.
Look at the instances in Houston and in other cities where youthful offenders engaged in this kind of activity have been shot and killed by homeowners," he said.
Suspicious events and unsupervised juveniles walking at night should be reported to the police department by calling 281-338-8210.
