Greenwich, Conn. (CBSNewYork) — This summer, Greenwich residents have returned to their cars to find their windows smashed, tires slashed or paint scratched by keys. Police are now searching for what they believe is a serial vandal or vandals.

There have been 17 reports of vehicles being vandalized over the past two months, including five last weekend, WCBS 880’s Paul Murnane reported. Along one stretch of Pemberwick Road, a half-dozen cars and trucks had identical scratches, some stretching from the front fender to the taillights.

“I was walking my dogs, and the car was fine,” said Rebecca Webb. “Come back, and it had been keyed within a matter of minutes.”

Police, who are increasing patrols in the neighborhood, told the Greenwich Time that they have no suspects.

Meanwhile, some vehicle owners are making a point to park in driveways instead of on curbs.
