Vandals target homes in Dane County community

TOWN OF BRISTOL, Wis. (AP) -- Dane County authorities say at least one vandal swept through a tiny community and damaged nearly two dozen properties.

The sheriff's office says the reports of damage started coming in Wednesday morning as people in the Town of Bristol awoke.

Spokeswoman Elise Schaffer says at least 23 people reported thefts or property damage, including slashed tires, smashed lights and derogatory graffiti. She says some residents also reported having their garages broken into and cash stolen from vehicles.

Daryl Severson was one of the victims. He tells WISC-TV there are still plenty of things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, but the day is a bit more challenging now that he has to clean broken glass out of his family room.

Schaffer says authorities are still looking for suspects.
