MASON CITY – The Mason City Police Department is investigating a “rash of vandalism” today after a night of lawlessness in the city.
According to police, motor vehicles on city streets were the target overnight. They said today that more than a dozen vehicles in the southeastern part of the city and neighborhoods surround East Park were damaged. Vandals are most likely traveling by vehicle and using pellet guns to break windows on parked cars.
This incident seems to be in addition to the police issuing citations to a group of four young Mason City men for shooting paint balls at vehicles last night on the south side of the city.
Police warned that citizens should avoid parking vehicles on the street overnight and report any suspicious noises or activity in their neighborhood.
Police are asking that anyone with information about the persons responsible for these crimes should contact the Mason City Police Department at 641-421-3636.
