Times-Tribune Staff Report
More than 30 cases of vandalism have been reported throughout Laurel County since Thursday, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.
Most of the cases occurred Thursday night, but two isolated cases occurred earlier in the week, Root said.
The vandals threw bricks and landscaping timbers through vehicle windows; rocks bricks, and a shovel through home windows, and destroyed mailboxes on many roads, including East KY 80, Golden Eagle Drive, Union Springs Church Road, Earl Howard Road, Tom Cat Trail, Sibert Lane, KY 830, KY 1189, Robinson Creek Road, Reed Valley and Lily Road.
Deputies are looking for a tan van, but other vehicles may be involved. Victims began phoning 911 late Thursday as the incidents occurred.
Root is asking for the public’s help in identifying these suspects. If anyone has surveillance videos, photos, a description of a vehicle or knows possible suspects involved, they are asked to call the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office at 864-6600 or 878-7000.
Sgt. Brett Reeves and deputies Shawn Boroviak, Shane Rice and John Inman have active cases open and are continuing to follow up on leads. Detective Charlie Loomis is also assisting the investigations.
