Rock-wielding vandals smash truck windshields in Rockaway Borough

Posted: Updated:

(05/31/06) ROCKAWAY ? Police are searching for the vandals who caused thousands of dollars worth of damage to parked trucks in Rockaway Borough over the holiday weekend.

In all, those responsible smashed the windshields of five trucks parked in an equipment storage lot. Witnesses say it appears the vandals used large rocks to inflict the damage. Rocks were found on the ground and on the hood of a truck in the lot.

Police believe kids are likely responsible for the damage. They came to that conclusion after finding a red Yankees baseball cap, marked with the word ?ghost,? at the crime scene. The word was written on the hat with graffiti-style markings. Investigators hope that piece of evidence will spark a lead in the investigation.
