We got a note this morning from reader WL that their tires were slashed last night in the 300 block of 26th Avenue:
My wife e-mailed me to report that our car’s tires were slashed on Tuesday night. She believes a neighbor’s tires were also slashed… We love in a great neighborhood, but things can always improve!
Their vehicle is currently in the shop, getting an expensive set of new tires.
Anyone else had problems like this recently?
Yup, happened to us too (500 block of 27th) a couple of week ago, as well as several other people in the Garfield neighborhood. My wife thinks its a gang initiation, I think it’s bored kids. Either way, it’s annoying and random, hope they catch them.
…to my 90-something year old neighbors. Needless to say, they were confused. And certainly a difficult expense for them to cover.
I don’t think it’s bored kids. It has been happening on different blocks every year around this time. Temple was hit about 4 years ago. The entire block. Very expensive and annoying.
