Tires slashed at senior apartment complex

Police are looking for someone who slashed the tires on at least 18 vehicles belonging to residents of an apartment complex for senior citizens in Griffin.

Police have surveillance video from the St. George Court complex, Channel 2 Action News reported.

The property manager told Channel 2 that four tires on one van were slashed in addition to one tire on 17 other vehicles on Sept. 21. All of the vehicles were owned by residents of the complex.

Griffin Police Chief C. Frank Strickland told the Griffin Daily News that several leads are being followed but that no arrest have been made.

White told the newspaper that there are security guards inside the building and that he is considering adding security cameras on the outside.

“Safety is the number one issue with the elderly,” he told the Daily News.
