HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. – Vandals are at it again in Highlands Ranch, and this time homeowners are making an attempt to fight back. The latest crime spree targeted more than 20 homes, but with a little help from some vigilant bystanders, police are hoping to get more leads Tuesday.
Just a month ago, vandals hit nearly a dozen cars and homes between in a Highlands Ranch neighborhood between University and Broadway. Now police are saying new vandals are using big rocks to destroy house windows, and that these vandals hit homes on 25 different streets in the same neighborhood over the course of the last several weeks.
“We’re looking at about 25 different victims,” Sgt. Ron Hanavan with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department said. “So when you put it all together you’re looking at thousands of dollars’ worth of damage.”
