CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Corpus Christi Police need help catching vandals that stomped out the windshields of four cars in one family's driveway.

Home security cameras recorded the crime that happened on June 20 at a home on the 5900 block of South Oso Parkway. The video shows two to three boys run out from a car in the street onto a driveway where there were several vehicles parked in a driveway. The vandals pull on door handles but when they are unsuccessful at opening the doors, two of them jump on the cars and stomp the windshields. Homeowner Ricardo Ibarra estimates the damages to be around $4,000.

"I would like to see these kids found and arrested so that they learn that these are real people that you're hurting," homeowner Ricardo Ibarra said of the vandals.

Ibarra posted his video on the Neighbors App that the doorbell camera company Ring operates which allows users to share security camera videos with other people in their community. He also gave the video to Corpus Christi Police.

CCPD says, if officers catch the vandals, they'll face criminal mischief charges that can range from a Class C Misdemeanor to a felony. If you recognize them from the video and pictures, call the police department at 361-888-TIPS. You can remain annonymous.
