Reward offered in car vandalism
By Lynda Jensen
A reward of $200 is being offered to solve a case of malicious mischief that occurred to a car parked along Highway 12 at Top Farm Tuesday night in Howard Lake.
All the windows were smashed on a red 1995 Volkswagon Jetta owned by Aaron Monson and Myra Hirsch of Montrose, including front and rear windows. Every tire was punctured.
The perpetrators probably used railroad ties and rocks, Monson said.
Monson had the car parked there for sale for a number of weeks.
The damage is not covered by insurance, he said.
The Wright County Sheriff's Department was contacted, he said.
Previously, there was a Camero parked nearby, for sale as well, but it was moved, Monson said.
"I thought he sold it," Monson said of the Camero owner.
However, the Camero was also severely damaged since its body panels were smashed, he said.
The Jetta damage probably happened in the middle of the night, he said.
Those who have information that leads to the arrest of the guilty party should contact the sheriff's office at 1-800-362-3667 (ask for the sheriff's office), or Monson directly at (612) 702-6259.
