UPDATE: Two Charged In Durant Vandalism Spree



The Durant Police Department has charged two juveniles in connection to the vandalism incident reported on Saturday, November 9, 2013.

The two were charged with 2nd Degree Crimnial Mischief and 3rd Degree Burglary on Monday, November 11th.

The case is still ongoing and the Durant Police Department would like to thank media and citizens who came forward with information during the investigation.


Durant police are asking for the public's help to find whomever is responsible for slashing dozens of vehicle tires in the community.

Jeff Thoma is one of many people in the community who had his tires slashed. He says throughout the 50-years he's been living in the small town, this is the first time something like this has happened to him. So when he saw that not only one, but seven tires on his various vehicles were slashed-he was far from happy.  

"I'm upset, but I'll get over it. You know, we have to fix our tires and hopefully they'll catch the ones who did this," said Thoma.

Police say about 40-tires total were slashed between Friday and Saturday morning. They were all in the north side of town, but they say the incidents are random.

"It's random for Durant. We just don't see this kind of thing. Which is what has rocked people back on to their heels," said Sergeant Brad Longlett. 

Tires were slashed in various places and homes so police are having a hard time finding a pattern that may lead them to catching whoever is behind it.

"With it being as sporadic as it was, granted there were a lot of tires, we just have to do a little different focus on the investigation," he said. 

That focus is now on the public. He's hoping somebody will come forward with any information.

If you or anyone you know have any information you can call the Durant Police Department at (563)785-6049.
