Gilbert neighborhood under siege by BB-gun vandals

Posted: Updated:
GILBERT, Ariz. -

One Gilbert neighborhood is under attack. Police say vandals drove through the neighborhood, shooting BBs at car windows, causing thousands of dollars in damage.

All these vandals hit in the Islands neighborhood in Gilbert.

Police say it happened sometime late Tuesday, but some neighbors just now realized they've been hit.

"It's frustrating," says Jill McClimon, waiting at her Gilbert house for a window repairman.

"I think she looked in the rearview mirror and noticed it."

Her daughter was on the way to school when she saw her rear window was shattered.

McClimon is not alone. Dozens of her neighbors are in the same boat after a vandal came through earlier this week shooting out car windows at random.

"We really have faith in the Gilbert Police to take care of this problem but it's definitely an issue," says Brandon Sullivan.

Brandon Sullivan feels lucky his car wasn't hit, but feels for all his neighbors who were.

"I don't really understand why we're under attack. Could be random bad luck, I don't know."

Gilbert police compiled a list of all the vandalism reports to try and find whoever is responsible.

Meanwhile, neighbors are repairing their cars and keeping a watchful eye out.

"It's frustrating, it's aggravating and you're thinking, I don't know what they're thinking when they're shooting up peoples vehicles. Is it fun? They've obviously never had it happen to them," says McClimon.

It's likely the person who committed this crime will face felony charges because of the amount of damage done. If you have any information, contact the Gilbert Police.
