Vehicle, home windows shot out in Cody

A vandal or vandals shot out windows in more than two dozen vehicles and houses on Friday night or Saturday morning in Cody.

Cody Police Officer and agency spokesman John Harris said the thousands of dollars worth of damage was dealt with a BB or pellet gun.

Reports continued to come in over the weekend as the damage was discovered, with police announcing Monday afternoon that they’d received 25 such reports; most of the damage was dealt to vehicles.

Harris said the weekend spree of property crime appeared to be related to a similar Jan. 5 incident, where someone shot out a vehicle window in the 900 block of Spruce Drive.

Police logs indicate broken windows were reported across a broad area of the city over the weekend, ranging from the northeast (Kent Avenue, Twin Creek Trail Avenue, C Street and Robert Street) to the northwest (Elm Avenue, River View Drive, Canyon View Avenue) to the more central portions (Salsbury Avenue and Sheridan Avenue) and the south (Meadow Lane Avenue, Casper Drive, and 11th Street). The department compiled a map of the reports, pictured below:

The agency is asking anyone with information about the vandalism to contact them by either calling 307-527-8700 or sending them a private message via the Cody Police Department Facebook page.
