Car vandals hit Henrico neighborhood

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - An overnight vandalism has several neighbors in one Henrico subdivision upset. Victims tell us about 5 cars were spray painted overnight Wednesday.

Scrubbing paint from his car was not the way Anthony Quivers planned to spend the first day with his brand new car.

"I don't understand why people do stuff like that," said Quivers.

He's been saving for five months to buy the car and finally brought it home last night. He found it covered in spray paint when he went to put to put the tags on it.

"I looked on the other side of the car and I went to get my tags and I looked at it, I just seen all that paint on it," said Quivers

Up and down Heather Ridge Drive, more paint on more cars. One family told us they got the call overnight telling them what had happened.

"I came home. I was gonna drive this," said Harvey McRae, gesturing to the car. "I can't drive it like that."

McRae says the paint is a pain to take off, but even more so a disappointment that someone would spend so much time destroying his property.

"It's so sad," said McRae. "and it's a shame that this would happen in a neighborhood like this. People's you know spent their hard earned money on there homes and all that then they gonna do what they wanted to."
