Vandals shooting out windows in Hutchinson continued the crimes for a second night, Hutchinson police said.

Sgt. Glenn McMurray said reports of broken windows starting coming in about 9 p.m. Wednesday after dozens of windows on cars and in buildings were shot out with a BB gun overnight Tuesday.

Police think the perpetrator is using a car to aid in the crimes because the damage is occurring all over town, McMurray said. Close to 30 vandalisms occurred between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, he added.

“They are happening tonight, too,” McMurray said Wednesday. “All of our guys are spending our time looking for these people.”

Hutchinson police say they don’t yet have a description of suspects. Anyone who witnesses the crimes or knows the vandals is encouraged to call 911.
