UC students allegedly vandalize neighborhood cars
CORRYVILLE, Ohio (Brad Underwood) -- Residents in Coryville woke up Sunday to find their cars vandalized on Bellevue Avenue.
According to some of the victims, the vandals were University of Cincinnati students leaving a house party.
On that stretch of Bellevue, a total of eight cars were vandalized. Most of the cars were parked on the street, but at least one of them was on private property where a side mirror was ripped off.
The vandals were consistent, knocking off side mirrors up and down the street.
According to the victims, there was a house party Saturday night that lasted until 4 or 5 a.m. That's when Kaitie Adams believes people leaving the party began smashing side mirrors off of neighborhood cars.
One neighbor told her he saw a UC student carrying a large orange construction cone while walking in the street.
Adams says she and other neighbors called police, but they aren't satisfied with the result.
"They have UC police patrolling these areas, but it's not in the jurisdiction, so even if they did see something happening, they wouldn't stop and do anything about it," says Adams. "They made that very clear when we talked to them this morning. What do you do when it's the students causing the crime and not the people in the surrounding areas, that's a big concern."
Adams did speak to a Cincinnati police officer who eventually showed up, but she won't be able to file a report until Monday.
As for the house party and the allegation that drunken students vandalized the cars, one student says he doesn't know anything about the party, but his house is being blamed for the incident.
If you have any information about the vandalism, please call Crimestoppers at 352-3040.
