    The truck left unattended on Duck Lake road also had it’s front grill and windshield smashed. It is beyond repair. This is a family vehicle, had plates, and was left because it became stuck. The owner retrieved it the next day, only to find it destroyed. This sort of random and pointless behavior left a young family with three children in a serious bind and I hope the culprits understand that while the police will probably not catch them, “karma” or whatever you want to call it will. Oh, and Merry Christmas to you too…
