JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. -- Car after car – tires flattened. And residents are filled with frustration.

“It’s a pain,” Varney Lapierre said. “Our tires slashed again -- for the second time. But this time it was all four tires.”

Vandals have now struck Lapierre twice – once on July 23 and again on Friday – for a total of six tires at $200 apiece.

That`s why police suspect whoever did it lives in the neighborhood, and perhaps uses a hunting knife to slice one-inch cuts in the sidewall.

“We’ve had the exact same thing happen, in the same area, with the same MO,” Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Mark Techmeyer said. “Apparently the suspect or suspects is walking down the sidewalk and slashes the passenger side tires, then goes across street, walks down the other sidewalk, then slashes those passenger side tires.”

Now victims are left to repair the damage, and pay out of pocket for the pain.

“It's costing me a fortune,” LaPierre said. “Not good. I wish they`d just leave us alone. We've had enough. Not sure what point they are trying to make. Enough is enough.”
