NEWARK - Building officials say 20 cars were vandalized in a parking lot overnight in Essex County.

The cars were parked in the lot of the Hidden Terrace Apartment building on Osborne Terrace in Newark.

Superintendent Mariano Roaca says the alleged suspects were caught vandalizing the vehicles on the building's security cameras. Roaca says the group that owns the building is currently looking into tighter security.

Tenants say the problems in the parking lot have been an ongoing issue.
