Vandals targeting, breaking car windows in Northeast San Antonio neig­hborhood

Vandals targeted several cars on Glen Mont Street

SAN ANTONIO - Some residents on the city's Northeast side are fed up after several of their car windows were broken.

It happened to several neighbors on Glen Mont Street.

Although the vandals have not been stealing anything, neighbors said the cost to replace all these windows is getting expensive.

Andrew Schuetze stepped outside about three weeks ago to find the back window of his wife's SUV smashed.

He said he was frustrated, but after dishing out hundreds of dollars to get it fixed and parking their car in a safer spot, he was even more annoyed when the same thing happened Wednesday morning.

"New glass is $600 to $700," Schuetze said. "And, even if you have insurance, you still gotta pay deductibles. It's going to cost me more money. I got a boy in college and a senior in high school. There's no plan for these expenses."

Pamela White, who lives a few houses down, said she had two of her vehicles vandalized four times in the last two months.

"It's always this back window," White said. "So, I parked it over here about two weeks ago and then this vehicle over here, it was vandalized. The side window on the driver's side has been knocked out."

Schuetze said he believes the people responsible have been using a BB guns of some sort because he has seen pellet markings on the back of his SUV.

"It's just a general concern that busted windows out one day, maybe it will lead to other things," he said.

Schuetze and White are reporting that the incidents of vandalism are happening overnight.

"It's terrible for hardworking people to have to continue to take care of these charges that it costs us to get these windows repaired," said White.

Bexar County Sheriff officials said Wednesday they are investigating the cases and that they're working to increase patrol in the Glen Mont area.
