Police probe 13 incidents in neighborhood

Vernon residents are repainting their mailboxes, cleaning their cars and, in one case, residing a garage, after what police call a rash of vandalism on Sunday.

"It was all spray painting on houses and vehicles and street signs," Lt. John Kelley, the patrol commander, said. "We had 13 reported incidents."

The man who resided his garage said he was removing paint when the siding started to come with it.  He felt compelled to erase the vandalism "’Cause of the words that were on there," he said.
 
A scrawl still on a house said "holy" with something obscene beneath it. 

A white mailbox across Donnel Road still had black spray paint on it, as did a stop sign and a ‘No Outlet” sign.

"We're just asking for anyone that may have seen anything to give us a call," Lt. Kelley said.  "Or if anybody has any damage to give us a call so we can document that.

He said the department is following up on some leads, but any information would be helpful.

You can reach Vernon Police at 860-872-9126.
