Police In Cherry Hill, Nearby Towns Step Up Search For Vandals
CHERRY HILL, NJ (CBS) – Authorities in Cherry Hill and four nearby Camden County communities are pressing their search for vandals who smashed windows on more than two-dozen parked vehicles in residential neighborhoods earlier this week (see related article).
Cherry Hill Mayor Bernie Platt says windshields and windows on at least 10 vehicles parked along streets in the Barclay neighborhood were shattered. And they weren’t alone. Police in Audubon, Haddonfield, Haddon Township and Oaklyn reported similar cases of windows smashed on vehicles within the same pre-dawn time frame. Authorities suspect the incidents may all be related.
He says police are pursuing leads and looking for the public’s help in identifying the vandals, “There are some leads and we’re waiting for people to come forward and if people have any knowledge of what’s happened they can call the Cherry Hill police detectives.”
That number is 856-488-7833.
Authorities say they’re also investigating reports in one neighborhood that the perpetrators were spotted riding in a dark-colored SUV or Jeep.
