Smithfield Police Cars Vandalized

Posted June 13, 2007

— Three Smithfield police cars are in need of repair after being vandalized, police said.

Someone threw a cement block into the windshields of the cruisers while they were parked at The Smithfield Herald offices, police said.

About two years ago, teens were charged with scratching several patrol cars in the same parking lot.

Police have no suspects in the latest incident.

    Some people are so ignorant. Tickets are only written when you are doing something you shouldn't be doing to begin with. Chances are, if you're not speeding, you're not going to get a speeding ticket...etc., etc.

    Hey Jeff, jokes on you moron. You get to pay for the window. Right out of your next check. Look at State tax and white it out. Put WINDOW in it's place.

    Thanks for the window jeff :)

    That parking lot is right next to a drug infested part of town. Some of the homes in that area should be condemned and that would help rid the area of the drug dealers/addicts. They should fence in the parking area for their own protection.

    Simply pothetic. People DEMAND respect from the police, yet they refuse to GIVE respect to the police.

    Police cars? Someone was very bold, or very stoopid.

    A bunch of disruptive and juvenile delinquents perhaps that have nothing better to do than to break the law and vandalize property not belonging to them. If not, then I apologize to the delinquents in advance if it turns out to be a sinister criminal just trying to get a lil pay back. In any event, whomever is responsible for the damages should foot the bill.
