Shattered glass: Windows on dozens of vehicles smashed in Milwaukee neighborhood

MILWAUKEE -- Residents of Milwaukee's Bay View neighborhood have plenty of questions after vandals struck a heavy blow in the community over the last two nights.

At least 40 vehicles had their windows smashed in. Some vehicles had multiple windows shattered. At least one victim was in the neighborhood near Wentworth and Pryor.

One victim told FOX6 News it appears the vandals are not taking anything from the vehicles -- they're just vandalizing them.

"Nothing taken. Nothing in it. They opened up the console a little. But there was nothing in the car to take, so they're looking for something," said Mike Franken, a vandalism victim. "It's a shame because we have a nice neighborhood."

Nobody is in custody for any of these crimes at this time. But some residents are now talking about installing security cameras on their homes.

    Funniest part about this is that if the police saw it happening and the suspects drove off they have to watch them drive away. Even a burglary in progress. Why would anyone invest in the city of Milwaukee? The people in charge enable criminal behavior.

    Acts like this drive car insurance rates up. Between the thefts, smashing, and carjacking, the wheel tax of $20, the upcoming wheel tax of $60, how is anyone supposed to be able to afford a car? Not everyone is able to ride the bus, with kids, hockey gear, groceries, pets to the vet, work stuff to carry, sometimes you just have to have a car.
