|More than 400 car tires were slashed overnight at two Delray Beach condo communities.|
Dozens of tow trucks and annoyed residents crowded the parking lot of the Verano at Delray condos, at 1805 Palm Cove Blvd., early Tuesday.
Around the corner, a similar scene unfolded at the Crosswinds condos, at 1850 Homewood Blvd.
Officers counted more than 200 tires slashed in each community.
Police first started getting calls about the vandalism around 5:30 a.m., police spokesman Jeff Messer said.
Most vehicles had two tires punctured, while some had one or three.
The punctures appeared to have be made with a 1-inch-blade knife or a box cutter, police said.
No suspects have been identified.

Editorial comment - It's because things like this happen that additional surveillance cameras are being installed in our condo parking lots. While cameras may not prevent incidents like this, they sure make it a lot easier to identify and prosecute the bad guys.
