RUTLAND, Vt. -
Rutland City Police are searching for a person or people who drove house to house Tuesday night and Wednesday morning shooting out people's car windows with a BB or pellet gun.
More than 60 people said their windows were shot overnight and police are still expecting more.
One of the victims is Shannon Morrill who had to improvise Wednesday morning with a cardboard cover over his back window but it was still undriveable with today's frigid conditions.
"Cost a lot of people aggravation, time and money," Morrill said.
Dorr Dr., where Morrill lives had several other people who suffered the same fate like Tom DePall.
"I went to warm her car up and looked in the rear view mirror and no window," DePall said.
Rutland City Police say the drive-by shootings started around midnight Wednesday and went on for hours
"75 plus calls for vandalism to vehicles, about a dozen damage to houses and half a dozen to businesses," Sgt James Tarbell said.
The result was thousands of dollars in damages but as of now no leads.
None of the people I talked with said they were woken up when the car drove by or woke up when their windows broke but police hope at some point someone was watching.
"We've reviewed store videos. a couple of the bigger businesses that have been vandalized or reviewing their video for us," Sgt Tarbell said.
But the damage is done for people like DePal, who will pay a $1,000 two replace to windows to two cars, and Morrill who has to pay more than a hundred.
"It's a $130 we hadn't planned on," Morrill said.
"It's very frustrating. Very frustrating."
Rutland City Police said that depending on the final count of vandalized vehicles the person or people responsible could face close to a hundred charges of unlawful mischief and a felony because of the financial damage caused.
