Homeowner: House vandalized more than 15 times since November
WOODLAND, WA (KPTV) -
A Woodland woman is trying to figure out who's vandalized her home more than 15 times since last fall.
Jamie Villanueva said the vandal's latest target happened about a week ago along her side fence. Whoever it is spray-painted some type of chemical in a long strip and killed some of her bushes, she said.
Villanueva's family moved into the home last September. She said the vandalism started about two months later.
Villanueva's family has found handfuls of screws and glass thrown on their driveway, yellow paint on her car, and epoxy sprayed onto her husband's truck, she said. The vandal or vandals spray-painted disturbing words on her back fence and chucked glass, screws, and eggs into her back yard, she added.
"I don't know how else to explain it other than disheartening and frustrating. I've never dealt with anything like this before," Villanueva said.
Villanueva said she's reported many of the incidents to police, but it's gotten to the point where investigators simply take a report and don't even bother to come out to her home anymore to take photos.
Villanueva has her suspicions about who's behind the damage. Her family's recently put up a surveillance camera to try to catch and deter them.
Call Woodland police if you have any information about who the culprit might be.
