Reynoldsburg police are investigating several reports of vehicles being vandalized between July 13 and July 15.

A resident reported the driver's side window of his 1997 Honda CRV was smashed between 4:30 p.m. July 13 and 6:30 a.m. July 14, while the vehicle was parked in front of his home in the 1500 block of Marvin Drive. He told police nothing was missing from inside.

A woman reported the right rear passenger window of her 2010 Chevrolet was smashed between 12:01 a.m. and 12:15 a.m. July 14, while the car was parked in the 1200 block of Rosehill Road.

The reporting officer said half of a pool cue lay on the rear seat near the smashed window. The other half of the pool cue was in a case, lying next to the vehicle's left rear fender.

The spark plug wires were cut to a woman's 2003 Ford Explorer between 9:30 p.m. July 13 and 3:45 p.m. July 14 while it was parked in her driveway in the 1400 block of Mariner Drive.
