LAPD: Four residents called in reporting damage

By Whitney Jones

A vandalism spree along Rio Bravo Drive and Potrillo Drive in White Rock over the April Fool’s weekend left some residents without transportation.

Los Alamos Police Department dispatch logs indicate on March 31 four people called in reporting damage to their vehicles.

“Who ever did this went on a rampage,” Rio Bravo resident Lois Schneider said, adding that a few of her neighbors had also been hit.

She said her husband made the call to the police. He reported that it looked like the windows of his pickup truck had been shot out, at which point he noticed that two other vehicles had also been vandalized at his address.

Lois Schneider said the couple had lived in the area for nearly 45 years and they have never experienced any problems like this before.

Schneider said the perpetrator trespassed on to their fenced property and either smashed or shot at windows in the couple’s three vehicles.

“They left us without any transportation,” she said adding that her insurance agent was kind enough to loan the couple a vehicle while the cars get repaired.

Two of the older cars that were vandalized didn’t have comprehensive insurance, so Schneider said the couple is on the hook to pay for those repairs.

“We heard nothing,” she said.
