Car windows smashed on Halloween EAST COLUMBIA

November 03, 1992

The windows of eight vehicles parked along Talisman Lane in Owen Brown were smashed during Halloween night, county police said.

Items were stolen from some of the cars, which were parked along the 7100 block of Talisman Lane, police said. The vandalism and thefts were reported in the early morning hours Sunday.

"I wouldn't say we'd attribute [the incidents] to Halloween pranks because some items were stolen," said Sgt. Gary Gardner, a police spokesman.

The vandals took money, a portable heater, cassette tapes, sunglasses and a tire gauge from some of the vehicles, police said.

Police said officers found a metal baseball bat lying in the grass that may have been used to vandalize the vehicles.
