— Vandals are striking vehicles again in Chapel Hill.

In one month, police say someone broke the windows in nine parked vehicles, at least seven of the vehicles was shot at using a BB gun.

Authorities say three incidents occurred in the central area of town and the rest occurred in northern Chapel Hill-Homestead Road and Weaver Dairy Road areas.

Police say it is similar to a rash of car vandals that hit the town in August and September. At least 40 cars ended up with slashed tires and broken windows.

A different type of vandalism occurred between Nov. 23 and Nov. 25 at Timberlyne Apartments near Weaver Dairy Road. Police say two buildings, a lamp and a bush were spray-painted. Blue paint was used and the words, "Night Fox," were painted on the buildings. It is not known if this incident is related to the damaged vehicles.
