Windows in parked cars and homes were smashed in an overnight rampage of vandalism Monday, Bellingham Police reported.
An arrest was made in one incident.
Damages totaling $8,000 were reported in several instances around the Cordata and Columbia neighborhoods. At least 15 separate reports of malicious mischief were logged, but investigators think only 10 to 12 incidents in the Cordata area were related, said police Lt. Danette Beckley.
“Officers responded to the north end of Bellingham in reference to a number of windows being broken out of houses and vehicles,” according to a notation in the city’s online police activity reports.
Charles Dion Antone Jimmy, 26, was arrested in the 1200 block of Northwind Circle at 2:39 a.m. Monday and booked into Whatcom County Jail on warrants and for second-degree malicious mischief. Vandalism was reported to a garage window at that address, according to the police logs.
Beckley said Jimmy is suspected only in the Cordata-area vandalism.
Formal charges haven’t been filed. Jimmy’s bail was set at $3,000 during a court appearance Tuesday afternoon.
