Morris police and fire department vehicles vandalized

MORRIS — Four vehicles belonging to the Morris Police Department and Morris Fire Protection and Ambulance District were vandalized Saturday.

Two unmarked police vehicles and two unmarked fire department vehicles were vandalized with black spray paint, Morris Police Chief Brent Dite said Monday. The spray paint did not indicate any wording or meaning.

At the time of the crime, the vehicles were parked at the homes of each fire and police official, which are located throughout the city.

"They're not really marked with any kind of lettering or decals," Dite said of the vandalized vehicles. "Obviously, it appears the people knew exactly who they were targeting."

The department did not immediately Monday have an estimate on how much the damages will cost the city.

Charges of criminal damage to state supported property could be filed against the perpetrators, Dite said, and depending on the amount of damage the charges could rise to felony charges.

The police department asks that any person with information pertaining to this case to call the Morris Police Department at 815-942-2131.
