NorthIowaToday.com received notice from two readers that windows were being shot out around the city.
The Mason City Police Department was contacted about the situation. Officer Mike McKelvey told NorthIowaToday.com that “the majority of the vandalism appears to have happened on Sunday thru Tuesday nights in these areas: N Penn Ave (State Street north to 7th Street NE and nearby side streets), highland area, random locations along Hwy 122 West, Hwy 65 North, SE, SW.”
McKelvey said that the suspects targeted “parked car windows and business windows, usually along a roadway. The suspects apparently are using a projectile to break the windows. From the amount of damage, the suspect(s) would probably be in a vehicle while they shoot out windows. Some of the damage has occurred between 7pm – 4 am on the various nights.”
