Vandalism Targets Maysville Students

A weekend string of car vandalism seems to have targeted multiple Maysville High School students.

"There was glass everywhere, so I mean the truck was un-drivable, he couldn’t even drive the vehicle," says Kim Morris.

It wasn’t until Sunday afternoon that Kim Morris discovered that the mailbox was smashed, along with the windows of her husband’s pickup truck, most likely happening early that morning.

"Some time around 4:30 in the morning, because my daughter heard some commotion, didn’t really know what was going on at that time, and it was my husband’s pickup truck, which was parked up in the yard, and they busted out the rear window and the two side windows out," says Morris.

Kim’s daughter, Kourtney, attends Maysville High School and sometimes drives her dad’s truck to school. She later found out that she wasn’t the only target.

"I didn’t know at that time that anyone else had had any vandalism until later and it kind of came together that a lot of kids that my daughter goes to school with has had the same type of vandalism on the same night," says Morris.

Mikel Compston attends Maysville and has a similar story.

"Came outside to see my gas lid on the floor with McDonalds’ cups and pop cans on the floor so they must have put pop in my gas tank. So, and I saw my driver’s window busted and my windshield had two gigantic holes in it, they took a bat to it I’m guessing," says Maysville Senior, Mikel Compston.

Numerous Maysville students have reported similar cases, causing quite a stir in the Maysville community.

"I want them to look at the damage that they’ve done, and realize what they’ve done to people’s property, and it’s not something that people can easily fix," says Morris.

Police have been notified of the vandalism.
