West Fargo police are investigating a string of vehicle vandalisms that took place overnight Wednesday.

Police have received 14 reports of vehicles with one or more windows being shot out by what appears to be a pellet gun and are expecting to receive more reports, said Capt. Mike Reitan.

Reitan said he expects to receive more reports when people come home from work or when they get back from holiday vacation.

The incidents took place east of the Sheyenne River to 20th Street East, south of Main Avenue and north of Seventh Avenue, Reitan said.

The vehicles were parked on or near the street.

"About every six to nine months we have somebody come around and do this," Reitan said. "Sometimes it's over the whole city, sometimes it's to an isolated area."

Fargo police received more than three dozen reports of windows being shot out during about a week in November, with some local businesses also targeted.

Most of the vehicles in Fargo were also parked along the street.

Fargo police Lt. Pat Claus said the Fargo vandalisms are still under investigation, but "after speaking with some people of interest they seem to have stopped."
