ODESSA - Police are looking for whoever is responsible for taking bricks or rocks and smashing the windows of ten different vehicles around the city early Sunday morning.

"It's just frustrating. It's not a good time to be doing things like that, this time of the season," Victim, Andy Murillo, said.

Murillo noticed Sunday afternoon that both his front windshield and driver side window were smashed in. He has already fixed his front windshield, now he's trying to fix the other window.

"I have no idea who it was. It's a childish act. Hopefully, we can find out who did it," Murillo said.

These suspects went on a spree throughout all of Odessa early Sunday morning. There is no rhyme or reason why the suspects targeted the vehicles they did.

"It's unknown why they did it. But they are randomly driving throughout the entire city. It's not just one specific location, it's all over the city," Steve LeSueur, with the Odessa Police Department, said.

LeSueur says this type of vandalism is considered criminal mischief, a Class A misdemeanor. Unless the amount is over $1,500, then it's a felony.

Police tell NewsWest 9 that no items were stolen out of the cars and trucks. That's why the motive isn't known.

"They are basically doing the damage then leaving. By the time the victim hears the noise, they go outside and the suspect is already gone," LeSueur said.

If you have information on the suspects involved in the vandalism, you're  asked to call Odessa Police or Odessa Crimestoppers at 333-TIPS
