Anyone miss a vehicle? Did it have a license tag?


It is great that there is a $1,000 reward as that has to have the villains sweating it. That's a nice bundle of cash for doing the right thing by turning them in. Hopefully, the punishment will be tough enough to discourage this behavior in the future.


Rotten vandals. They'll find out who did this, I'm quite sure. Kids talk.
