LONGMONT, Colo. – Police in Longmont are on the search for suspects after 27 cars saw at least one of their tires slashed overnight Saturday into Sunday morning.

At least 37 tires on 27 cars were slashed on vehicles parked in the residential areas of downtown Longmont, said Longmont Police Cmdr. Joel Post.

Police are investigating and were gathering surveillance video from the area Monday, but Post said they had no suspects as of Monday afternoon.

This isn’t the first time in recent years that hosts of vehicles were vandalized in the city. Last summer, at least six car arsons were reported in one night in downtown Longmont. Over Memorial Day weekend in 2017, several people staying at various Longmont hotels had their tires slashed. A year earlier, there was also a series of tire slashings in the city.

And in Lakewood just a few weeks ago, police opened an investigation after a dozen vehicles had their tires slashed for “no apparent reason at all,” police said at the time.

Anyone with information about the most-recent Longmont slashings is asked to call 303-651-8555.
