Police are investigating at least 13 tire slashings that occurred April 10 and April 11 in the Sutter Gate area.
Residents on Sutter Gate Avenue, Laramie Gate Avenue, Laramie Gate Circle and Laramie Gate Way found tires of their vehicles had been vandalized overnight. The following day, nine more residents of the same neighborhood discovered the tires on one or more of their vehicles had also been vandalized, according to a police report.
The damage had been inflicted sometime overnight each night, and the police report said a vandal or punctured one or more tires of vehicles parked along the street or in the driveway of the residents with an unknown object.
There is no indication at this time that these incidents are related to the vandalisms that occurred on March 24 in the Valley Trails area.
A total of 28 cars on four streets were vandalized in the Valley Trails neighborhood late March 23 or early March 24, according to police reports from the time.
Fourteen vehicles parked on Valley Trails Drive were damaged, along with 10 on Yellowstone Court, three on Cumberland Gap Court and one on Isle Royal Court. There are no suspects.
The sidewalls of the victims' tires were punctured in the earlier vandalisms, making the tires unfixable. The vehicles were all parked on the road in front of the victims' homes; the puncture marks looked like they were caused with a half-inch knife blade in what police are calling apparent "random acts of vandalism."
Anyone who witnessed either of these crimes, or has information regarding them is asked to contact the Pleasanton Police Department at 931-5100.
