Mass. - More cases of vandalism involving white marbles have been reported in
Pittsfield after Rensselaer County law enforcement began investigating similar
incidents on Monday.
Over the weekend residents in three counties found themselves
with damage to their homes and cars and extremely scared by the actions of
those police have yet to locate.
Officials said large white marbles caused the damage, but they aren't
sure what type of weapon was used to shoot them at the homes.
resident named John who lives on Highland Avenue in Pittsfield said he was
having dinner Friday night when he heard an alarming noise.
"It sounded like a gun almost you know. It scared you. It really did,"
John rushed from his kitchen table to his living room
where he found this hole in his front window, but it wasn't from an ordinary
bullet, it was from a white marble like bullet, the same marbles that have been
found in homes and cars in Schaghticoke, Brunswick, Pleasantdale and Halfmoon.
On Saturday night in Rensselaer and Saratoga Counties,
four homes and two cars were damaged when the white marbles smashed through
them. On Friday, Pittsfield Police say windows in one car and four homes were broken
by the marbles now victims like John have to come up with the money to repair
the vandal's damage.
of the victims said the repairs to his damaged front window will cost nearly
$400 to repair.
"I don't know how they're going to get caught but I hope
they do," said John.
Pittsfield Police say they do not have any suspects at
this point but they will be talking with State Police and the Rensselaer County
Sheriff's Office to see if all of these incidents could be related.
