READING, Pa. - Residents of a Reading neighborhood plagued by vandalism to their vehicles are getting no relief.
Approximately 20 more vehicles were vandalized in northeast Reading over the weekend, RPD Sgt. Darrin C. Dougherty told 69 News on Monday.
As of last Friday afternoon, more than 50 cars had been damaged by BB gun-toting vehicles in the same area of the city, police said.
Stephiny Chimelis told 69 News that she's sick and tired of having to replace her car windows.
"It's not fair, because people don't know the value of what other people have," she said. "They are just doing it for fun."
Reading police said they have stepped up patrols in the area as a result of the vandalism, which has also stretched to neighboring Cumru and Muhlenberg townships.
