VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Neighbors along Lakecrest Road were left cleaning up a big mess after vandals, armed with spray paint, damaged seven vehicles.
“Somebody has nothing else to do but destroy property, of other people’s cars and stuff,” said Mary Ayscue, who moved in 41 years ago.
Virginia Beach police told WAVY.com vandals defaced the vehicles between 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. Sunday night. They sprayed white paint randomly across the cars.
“It was a mess. No message, no religious signs, just doodling,” resident David Thomas said. “I was very upset.”
The victims are still in shock. They told WAVY.com this type of criminal mischief does not typically happen on their street. Thomas said the incident was the worst crime he’s seen in his 27 years on the block.
“I just can’t understand why someone would do something like this,” Ayscue said.
