BB gun vandal strikes in Beaumont

Posted: Updated:

Beaumont police are investigating a bunch of vandalism in the Parkdale Mall area.  Officers say someone with a pellet gun apparently is the culprit.  

As of 6 a.m. officers were called to at least 5 reports of businesses with windows shot by a BB or pellet gun.  Once other businesses open for the day it's possible police will get more reports of vandalism.

A dispatcher says it's too early to know how many businesses were vandalized or put a dollar amount on the damage.  She did say Texas Bed Company and Michael's are among the vandals targets. 

Commercial windows can cost hundreds of dollars a piece to replace.  An officer taking reports this morning tells 12NewsNow.Com this is the second time in a month Beaumont had a rash of windows shot out and it could be the handiwork of the same person.  The total dollar amount in damage could end up making the crime a felony.

Anyone with information about the vandalism is asked to call the Beaumont Police Department.
