Vandals Strike In Muscatine


Several homes were hit overnight in Muscatine; neighbors woke up to find vulgar language and symbols spray painted all over their homes and cars.  

Neighbors say about five homes were hit in the area along Oak Street and Cottage Street. 

They say they came home Saturday night around 7:30pm and woke up this morning to find their homes and property completely defaced.     

Now they're looking for your help to find who's responsible.  

"Right when I got to here, I saw that and I'm like ‘oh my goodness,'" Shannon Miller says of the graffiti on her home and her husband's truck. 

When Miller and her family came back from a fishing trip Saturday night, she says everything was fine. 

But this morning that all changed. 

"My husband came out about 9 o'clock this morning and seen some vulgar language spray painted on his truck," Miller says.

The unwelcome surprises didn't stop there.

"I called the police, walking up to meet the officer, and I noticed on the side of the house," Miller says. 

The Millers are not alone. Their next door neighbor's garage was also vandalized.    

Across the street neighbors there have been cleaning the paint off their car all day.  

"This is actually a very quiet neighborhood, that's one of the reasons we actually moved here," Miller says. 

A few houses down, Jim Gibson woke up to his car vandalized.  

"Just came down through the window, through the handles, all the way through this back panel," Gibson says of the spray paint on his car. 

"Needless to say not a great start to my Sunday morning," Gibson says. 

Neighbors say they're upset and surprised this could happen.  

"Really? We have to act like children?" Gibson says, "Most of the people doing this are probably adults or wannabe adults and they act like a bunch of kids."

Tonight they have this message for the alleged vandals.  

"Leave us alone, find other things to do with your time then wreck people's property and damage vehicles," Miller says. 

If you have any information on any of these incidents, neighbors ask that you contact Muscatine Police.
