Police: 11 vandalism incidents reported in northern Wilton

Posted: Updated:
WILTON -

Police are seeking the public's help in solving multiple incidents of vandalism in the northern section of Wilton.

The vandalism includes damage to cars, mailboxes and light fixtures, according to authorities. So far, 11 incidents have been reported to the Wilton Police Department.

Police say the destruction has been happening around 10 p.m. to midnight since last week. Police believe the crimes could be tied to a string of vandalism in Ridgefield.

Police are now working with officers in Ridgefield, but they don't believe the motive is theft.

The cars damaged were all parked on the street. Police are asking residents with driveways to keep their cars there.

Police say this would likely lead to a criminal mischief charge. If damage is more than $1,500, it could be a felony.
