Cars, homes and businesses were the targets for vandals in Cloquet recently. More than 30 vehicles were covered in paint and police want the community's help to find a suspect.
Interim Police Chief Terry Hill said similar vandalism happened back in June. This recent incident took place last Saturday morning. Police got the call at 5:30 a.m. about cream paint dumped on cars and smeared on walls.
The damage was done from the 300 to 1000 block of Carlton Avenue. Officers alerted people about the damage while the paint was still wet, so many people were able to wipe away the paint before it dried. Hill said it's still destructive.
"I find it senseless," Hill said. "I think that people or individuals may think it's a harmless-type prank, but truly it's not. They need to realize it's a chargeable offense."
Hill said the suspect or suspects could face misdemeanor or felony charges.
Hill said the community has played a key part in solving crimes in the past. Anyone with information should contact the Cloquet Police Department on social media or by calling (218) 879-1247.
