Homes, cars damaged by marbles in local neighborhoods

Posted: Updated:

RENSSELAER, N.Y.—Two local agencies are investigating incidents of car and home damage after windows were broken with marbles in three different areas.

Police say the incidents occurred between Saturday night into Sunday morning. In Schaghticoke, a window was shot out at a home and also in Brunswick, and in a Pleasantdale neighborhood three residents were also victims.

On Sunday, December 29, 2013, a Pleasantdale resident found a white marble outside his house after his living room window was broken. Brody Morris, a neighbor, found a second white marble in his sister's car where more windows had been broken.

Police say these white marbles were found at all five locations where the incidents happened over the weekend.

Police have no suspects at this point, but believe those responsible could have used a paintball gun to shoot the marble like bullets.

"There's a lot of kids running around here, and I mean if it would've happened during the day and someone got hurt then that would have really, because there's always little kids running around you know" said Brody Morris.

State Police and the Rensselaer County Sheriff's Office say this is an ongoing investigation and they are still searching for those involved.
