ODEESA - It's a wake up call no one wants, looking out the window to see your front yard completely trashed.

"When I woke up this morning I looked outside my window like I always do and there it was, I'm disgusted that it could happen in a neighborhood like this," Dean Brinningham said.

Eggs shells, pizza boxes, chocolate and mustard was splattered all over their front door and their trucks.

"I can't imagine in the early morning, someone getting up and trashing a lawn like that," James Brinningham said.

The Brittinghams have lived in their home for 62 years and while they say stuff has been thrown at their house before, nothing to this extent has ever happened.

"I can't believe something like this could happen to me," Dean said.

Luckily for them, the City of Odessa is stepping in and offering a lending hand.

"This is not something that the city normally does, but we're doing it out of courtesy," Andrea Goodson, with the City Of Odessa, said.

The Brittinghams say they hope authorities find the person who is responsible for trashing a once quite neighborhood.

"I'm still upset, I hope they don't do this to anyone else," Dean said.

Officials from the City of Odessa say the best way to avoid falling victim to a similar incident is to keep a neighborhood watch and report any suspicious activity to police immediately.
