Winter-Related Car Vandalism Spikes on Seaverns Avenue
Boston Police said they're sending extra patrols around the Seaverns Avenue area, were there has been a cluster of reports of vandalism likely arising from disputes over parking. That's one of the takeaways from Thursday's monthly police-community meeting. Police this week issued a community alert about car vandalism. Officers fleshed out those concerns at Thursday's meeting, held at Curtis Hall Community Center. In February, police have seen a rise in incidents like windshield wipers being snapped, rear view mirrors being broken off and cars being scraped.
