HOLLAND, Mich. - The Holland Department of Public Safety says that 28 vehicles were damaged with at least one flat tire at the Lincoln Estates Mobile Home Park on Thursday, July 12.
Police say around 2:50 a.m. they were dispatched to a report of a flattened tire to one vehicle at the mobile home park. When they checked the area, they found a total of 28 damaged vehicles.
The investigating officer believes that the incidents occurred around 1:30 a.m. on July 12.
Ray Rios has lived in the park for 20 years, and said this is the first time it has happened. Two of his tires were punctured.
“One of the neighbors had both of their vehicles and a motorcycle tires slashed, in the end it's going to cost us money,” Rios said.
He was at work when it happened, but drove home right away when he received a text from his wife about the incident.
"Driving down the road you could see cars from the left side and the right side just flat,” Rios said.
Even with his full coverage car insurance, it doesn't cover tires, and he has to pay for the damage and towing out of pocket.
“Where they did the slashing it’s unrepairable on the side of the tire," Rios said. “If you look at the puncture wound, it’s round, so it looks like it was a screwdriver.”
No witnesses were located so there is no description of the suspect or suspects. The case is still being investigated.
