Vandalism Spree Strikes Westside Neighborhoods

Police say they suspect that a wild vandalism spree this week was carried out by a group of youths who shattered car windows, slashed tires and destroyed mailboxes along a stretch of seven-figure-home neighborhoods between Beverly Hills and Pacific Palisades.

The destruction began shortly after 2 a.m. Tuesday near La Cienega Boulevard north of Wilshire Boulevard and didn't end until nearly four hours later in Temescal Canyon near Pacific Coast Highway.

The unknown assailants wrought a trail of destruction along some of the most upscale streets on the Westside, smashing windows of expensive automobiles in Bel-Air with huge ball bearings, strafing parked cars with pellet guns in Brentwood Park, and throwing alcohol bottles and slashing tires at random.
