Vandals are striking in one Putnam County neighborhood, and some of the residents aren't happy with all the destruction.
Tina Call woke up Sunday morning to find her mailbox on the ground and her trash scattered along the road.
“I'm really frustrated, because I paid a lot of money for that mailbox," she said.
And call isn't the only victim.
She said several people living along Hodges Road in hurricane were hit by late night vandals.
Call said the neighborhood is usually quiet, so, after seeing this morning's mess, she called Putnam County deputies.
"They said there wasn't a lot they could do but take my report,” she said. “Said they had no suspects. "
Vandalism has been on the rise lately. Recently, in Kanawha County, South
Charleston police arrested two people for slashing tires.
And much like those incidents, this vandalism comes with a hefty price tag.
"It's not fun and games,” Call said. “It costs people money. There's nothing you can do about it, but clean up after the brats!"
Police said they have video of suspects, and anyone with information is asked to call police.
Hurricane police are trying to find the person accused of vandalizing several mailboxes.
Investigators said several mailboxes in the 200 block of Hodges Creek Road were knocked over sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning.
Anybody with information should call police.
