Tires slashed on up to 160 vehicles in Marysville

tiresMARYSVILLE — Police on Friday were investigating a major vandalism case in Marysville — the slashing of tires on up to 160 vehicles Thursday night and early Friday.

All of the slashings occurred in central Marysville, police said.

“We are indicating an estimate of 140 – 160,” a police spokesman said. “We’ve had 132 vehicles reported through 911, but also know that there are victims who chose not to report their crime.

“At this time there are no suspects,” the spokesman said. “We are asking for the public to call if they have any information about these crimes. In addition, with the increased use of residential security cameras, we are asking for folks to review their video footage for any suspicious activity that may have been captured.”

One of the victims, Teresa McGuire, said Friday, “None of us were able to drive a vehicle to work today.”

Four cars in her family were vandalized, with 13 tires slashed, including on a new car bought only two weeks ago.

When David Nakao got up Friday morning, he thought his son was joking.

“I thought he was kidding me.  I came out (and said), They slashed my tires!” Nakao said. “He said, ‘ I told you.’”

Nearly every other family on 98th Place SE  was dealing with punctured tires. Police said tires on up to 160 cars were were slashed, all within a 1 mile radius.

“Whoever it is, I would like to say, ‘You are sick and you need help,’” McGuire said.

    Maybe they got sick and tired of 1 house having 5 cars parked on the street. Sort of wish they would hit my street…these people have a 3/4 bedroom house with 5-6 cars out front on the street….and a garage full of last year's walmart. If they would park in their drive way or garage they wouldn't have that problem.

    Someone please find this person or persons and get evidence against them on video so they can spend time in one of our Washington State Penitentiaries. They are nothing but criminals and probably think it is a fun thing to do. But if they are caught just maybe we will have a Judge with the guts to send them to the Monroe Prison for their offense's.

    They need to catch the people involved. My wonderful sister in law her husband and her daughter’s cars were all involved. How cruel can people be? Catch them and throw away the key.

    It could be the local tire company that is slashing the tires=more business. I recommend you guys get new tires out of town.

    Wow, what a lowlife kid to do a crime like this. He/she has no idea of the TROUBLE they will be in when they are caught. I am sure they will be caught, most people are eventually. I am sorry for those who lost work and had to put THOUSANDS of dollars into new tires, right before Christmas. I am sure most of these families could have found much better uses for this waste of time and finances. A real SHAME. I REALLY hope there is some sort of video that will incriminate this IDIOT!
