HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Neighbors say someone smashed out the windows of at least four cars in the Spottswood Park neighborhood in Henrico's Tuckahoe.

"It's a nuisance for sure,” Spottswood Park Civic Association President Meade Browder said. "We don't usually have these type of things in this neighborhood. It's pretty rare."

Browder said that when he discovered the damage to his car Thursday morning, he called police.

"Whether it's just kids or whatever, I don't know. But obviously, it can be anybody,” said Browder.

A couple of blocks away on Sunset Drive, another vehicle was hit by vandals.

"The Henrico Police patrol pretty carefully around here," said Anita Priddy, who lives nearby. "Of course they can't be everywhere, every moment.”

But Browder said there have also been recent reports of shed break-ins where equipment was stolen in the area.

As a result,  Browder is urging his neighbors to be vigilant.

"Keep post lamps on and listen out for things,” said Browder. "If somebody comes by in the middle of the night and does that. I don't know if there's so much we can do."

Neighbors in the Spottswood Park Community are asking for more police to patrol the area.

Henrico Police said an investigation is underway.
