It all happened early Saturday morning. Witnesses tell Police that they saw four black men running from a vehicle on the 500 block of 2nd Street. This is after Police say the four men stole an SUV. They then tried to hit every parked car they could over several city blocks.

At least ten cars suffered heavy damage. Most of the cars were parked on the 600 block of 15th Street and the 300 block of South Gardener. Some vehicles received damage to both the front and back end. Residents say they believe the vehicle actually stopped then backed up to hit some of the cars again. Police have impounded the vehicle responsible for this string of crashes. The car was then found running after it crashed into another parked car. No word on how much damage has been caused. Early estimates put damage in the tens of thousands of dollars.
