The Arvada Police Department is investigating a series of incidents that have damaged roughly 90 Arvada vehicles and a handful of houses.
The incidents began Aug. 25, when an unknown suspect damaged 30 car windows, possibly with a BB gun, said the department's Detective Dave Snelling. On Aug. 27, 10 more vehicles were damaged, and Sept. 6, approximately 90 had been damaged.
The shootings have mostly occurred in areas north of 58th Avenue and west of Simms Street, Snelling said, with incidents taking place inside and outside city limits.
The lead investigator on the case, Detective R. Hille, is looking into a Nissan SUV of unknown color that appears to be associated with the crimes.
The department requests that those near the incidents check any footage they have available, such as that recorded by a doorbell camera.
“If we connect these cases, we're looking at felony criminal mischief,” Snelling said. “It's very frustrating to be these victims and have to take a day off of work and pay for repairs. This is costing people a lot of money and headache.”
The police department has asked anyone with more information to contact Detective Hille at (720) 898-6619.
