RIFLE POLICE LOOKING FOR SUSPECT VEHICLE IN VANDALISM SPREE

Rifle—The Rifle Police Department has reason to believe the vehicle driven during last week’s drive-by, BB gun shootings of nearly three dozen parked cars is an older model Jeep Grand Cherokee.  According to surveillance camera photos, the 1999 to 2004 Jeep is either silver or light gold in color.  Police are circulating the images of the vehicle to the public in hopes of finding the suspects.  Sometime between late last Monday night, March 27th and early Tuesday morning, vandals using a BB  or pellet gun shot the windows out of 34 vehicles, 3 businesses and 1 home.
