Cottonwood Neighborhood Vehicles Vandalized

yavapai county sheriff officeSedona AZ (February 12, 2013) – On February 8, 2013, Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office deputies investigated a graffiti report at an address on East Verde View Drive, Cottonwood. The deputies were told by the victim that unknown suspect(s) had written racial and sexual slurs on the windows of his vehicle with white glass paint. The victim heard people outside earlier, but did not see the graffiti until he checked his front yard after noticing some property had been moved. He did recall seeing a group of four to five juveniles in their late teens near the intersection of Del Rio Drive and Roundup Trail earlier in the evening, and thought they might be involved.

As deputies canvassed the neighborhood, they found additional acts of vandalism to vehicles. Three vehicles in the 4500 block of Verde View Drive were had the same type of writings on vehicle windows, along with vehicles on Eastern Drive, Comanche Drive, Diablo Circle, Navajo Drive, and Roundup Trail. In some cases a “swastika” symbol was painted on the glass along with related slurs. Fortunately, none of the damage to vehicles was permanent, and it initially appears the victims were random targets.

Based on victim interviews, deputies believe the suspects struck sometime between 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. during Friday evening.

Deputies have leads but are seeking help from the public to identify and locate suspects. It is probable the suspects reside in the general area of these incidents.
