Perry County residents frustrated by vehicle vandalism

Posted: Updated:
NEWPORT, Pa. (WHTM) -

It would infuriate just about anyone: walking to your car to find your window busted by vandals.

Its a blood pressure raising, costly inconvenience that Millerstown's Georgeann Cubbison knows all about. Cubbison says vandals broke her back window and busted a side mirror early Thursday morning.

"It's just frustrating, its irritating," said Cubbison, who made the discovery while she was leaving for a doctor's appointment. Now, she doesn't know how she is going to pay for the damage.

"I hate it because I can't afford to fix it," Cubbison said.

State police are investigating the vandalism that left at least nine other cars damaged in Millerstown and Liverpool.

The vandals were in an unknown vehicle, possibly a red or blue pickup truck, that traveled along the area of Market Street, Front Street and Pine Street in Liverpool late Wednesday. They used a blunt object to damage the side mirrors, windows and windshields of vehicles parked along the streets, police said.

At least six cars were damaged in Liverpool, and four more were struck in Millerstown early Thursday, again with a blunt object that damaged the side mirrors of vehicles parked along North Market Street, police said.

Scott True knows all about it. He runsTrue Glass Service in Newport and said two customers were victims of the vandals. He replaced a driver's side window and a windshield on Friday.

True said it looks like a baseball bat did the damage.

"I don't mind the business, but I don't like getting it that way," True said.

Replacing the average windshield costs roughly $200 to $300.

"Why, why did they do it? There's people like me who can't afford to get it fixed.," Cubbison said.

Anyone with information is asked to call state police in Newport at 717-567-3110.
