Kennewick Tire Slashings String Could Be Spring Break Mischief

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- Kennewick police say a series of tire slashings could be a case of spring break mischief.

Police say teens may be behind the vandalism and they want you to keep watch on your wheels.

Four tire slashings were reported Monday in Kennewick and most of them were within blocks of each other.

Police say this kind of activity typically spikes when kids are out of school.

This week is spring break and the sun is shining, so police say teens with too much free time may be out causing trouble.

"During the holiday seasons when we have kids that are out of school we start seeing a few more incidents of vandalism and malicious mischief. In the particular instance, four incidents overnight all with car slashing tires, it appears they might be related to each other," said Mike Blatman, Kennewick Police Department.

Police say they do not have any suspects at this point.

And they saw similar activity last week, right before spring break started when several tire slashings were reported in the Canyon Lakes area.

Police want parents to talk to their children about the consequences of spring break trouble making and keep tabs on where their kids are.
