Sheriff Pat Eliasen said the vandal or vandals are scratching "5-D" with multiple lines on each vehicle. Eliasen said the "tag" is believed to be a reference to drug use. One car also had its tires slashed.

The sheriff's office believes it is happening in the evening, and the public is asked to be extra vigilant and report any suspicious people immediately. 

"This senseless activity has caused a significant amount of damage for several community members," Sheriff Eliasen said in a press release. 

Law enforcement also reminded the community about curfew for juveniles. Kids and teens 16 and under must be home by 10:30 p.m., and 17-year-olds must be off the streets by midnight. 

Anyone with information about the vandalism is asked to call the Cook County Sheriff's Office.
