Police still investigating Carmel Valley tire slashings

By Karen Billing

San Diego Police Department is still looking for a suspect who vandalized 17 cars in Carmel Valley on Wednesday, Jan. 4. The tires of 17 cars were slashed along the 5200 block of Pearlman Way off Ashley Falls Drive, according to Northwestern Division Sgt. Ernesto Servin.

The suspect, a white male spotted wearing shorts and a ski mask, began his vandalism spree around 9 p.m. He first broke into a travel trailer and stole knives.

“The suspect then used the knives to slash the tires on the vehicles,” Servin said.

One car vandalized was left unlocked and the suspect opened the door and took a garage door opener. A witness saw the suspect enter the garage and check out the car parked inside — the suspect did not enter the home or take anything from the garage.

“We have some idea of who this suspect may be but we are waiting for evidence to come back from the lab,” Servin said,

Servin asked that the community continue to report any suspicious activity, as the Carmel Valley resident did when he saw the man breaking into the car. He also warned people not to leave garage door openers inside cars parked outside and to make cars less of a target for crimes of opportunity by locking car doors and not leaving items in open view.
