A series of tire slashings on luxury cars and SUVs early Saturday in northwest Glendale was a "random act" of vandalism, according to police.
In some cases, all four tires were slashed on the high-end cars, most of which were parked in home driveways and on the dimly lighted streets of Vista Drive, West Mountain Street, Grandview and Winchester avenues, and Cumberland and Kenneth roads, according to Glendale police.
One of the cars, a Cadillac CTS, belonged to City Manager Scott Ochoa and had all of its tires slashed. It was one of three vandalized cars, including a 2011 Mercedes-Benz C300 and 2012 BMW 528, on Vista Drive.
"While we would not want anyone to have to worry about their vehicle being vandalized, take precautions to leave [it] in well-lit areas, have motion lights installed in driveways or park in your garage," Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. "Most importantly, watch out for each other, call in anything suspicious."
