A student gets a shock after school one day recently. Her car parked across the street from Burke high isn't the way she left it. Is she a target or just a random victim of vandalism?
The car CJ Yabut thought she would drive to college won't even make it through her senior year of high school. C.J. says, "They tore up my seats all the back here and tore off this part."
A week ago Wednesday thieves didn’t succeed in stealing the car from the street in front of Burke high. So they trashed and slashed the interior.
C.J. Yabut says, " I can't think of anyone who would want to target me and that looks really angry so maybe they just vented it there."
The seats front and back are cut up. The steering column broken though the car can be started it’s not safe to drive. The windshield wiper control snapped off.
C.J.'s father says he just spent 15 hundred dollars to make the well cared for Volvo run even better. Jay Yabut father says, " We claim this to our insurance and she's going to end up paying for it in the long run. Her insurance may go up."
Jay wished they had spent money for a school parking permit instead of his daughter parking on the street in front of the school.
The vandalism victim has filed a police report. She hopes someone will provide a tip to identify anyone hanging around her car during school hours on Wednesday October 23rd.
