SWANTON — Police are investigating the slashing of vehicle tires on Rocky Ridge Road overnight on Saturday. 

Vermont State Police said it received three separate reports of vandalism to motor vehicles parked at homes on the road on Sunday morning. The total damage is estimated at $3,000. 

In an email to the Messenger, one of the victims, Dolores Nichols, said the tires were slashed on both of her family’s vehicles. Two neighbors had tires slashed as well. 

According to Nichols, all three victims had signs on their yards opposing the proposed Swanton Wind project. 

An effort this morning to corroborate that with police was unsuccessful. Authorities, in the statement announcing their investigation, made no mention of the proposed and controversial wind project being discussed for property near the neighborhood. 

“We have a daughter with seizures and no vehicle now if something was to happen to her,” wrote Nichols. She added, however, that the family’s insurance company would be supplying them with a rental car today. 

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Vermont State Police at 524-5993.
