Kenmore has seen a rash of vehicle vandalism incidents during the last month with deputies unable to find suspects.

According to King County Sheriff’s Office records, at least 17 vehicles have been vandalized since June 22, many of the incidents involved multiple vehicles.

On June 22, a truck’s rear window was broken in the 18000 block of 80th Ave. NE.

Four days later, four cars were damaged in the 19200 block of 63rd Ave. NE, many of them had rocks or bricks thrown through their windows. The back window of a vehicle parked on the side of the road in the 5500 block of NE 193rd Street was also broken.

On June 29, a vehicle had its keyhole punched in while parked in the 6700 block of NE 185th St.

One day later, five vehicles also had windows broken at the Kenmore Park and Ride. A group of kids were seen leaving the area, according to Cindi West, King County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson.

The following day, another vehicle was vandalized in at the Park and Ride.

On July 7, two cars sustained broken windows at Seattle Water Sports.

Two other incidents were reported but West said they were not thought to be related.

West said there were no suspects but asked the public to report suspicious activity immediately. She said someone in the area likely knows who the perpetrators were, or has seen something and asked people to come forward if they have any information.

She also said keeping vehicles parked in well-lit places can help in some cases, but also said some of the incidents happened in open areas.

Jon Lindstrom lives in the 19200 block of 63rd Ave. and was one of the victims. He awoke on June 26 to a broken car window from a brick hurdled through it.

“We have never had any vandalism at our house or our cars over the years,” he said.

His neighbors also awoke to vandalized cars.

The proximity to high school graduation made him think it could have been kids, he said, and had a message for the vandals.

“It’s such a pain in the neck for the person who has to deal with it,” he said.
