Overnight In Oneonta

ONEONTA – Oneonta Police are seeking the suspects in more than 20 incidents of tires punctured overnight in Oneonta’s East End.

“We started getting calls at 10 a.m. this morning,” said Police Chief Doug Brenner. “And we’ve been collecting statements all day.”

The tires were allegedly punctured along the side, he said, with either a knife or a screwdriver. Some cars had just one tire slashed, others had multiple tires damaged.

Instances were reported on Fair Street, Hudson Street, Belmont Circle, North Belmont Circle, Forest Avenue and the corner of Rose Avenue and Main Street. Brenner believes the crimes took place between 9 -11 p.m. last night. Anyone with information is asked to call (607) 432-1113.

“It’s an expensive criminal act,” he said.

    Expensive isn’t the word to describe this crime. I’ve had my tires slashed while at work, and it’s really traumatic. I went to my vehicle, expecting to go to lunch, only to find that all 4 of my tires are slashed. I got no lunch that day, and you spent the rest of the shift wondering who would do this and why. It took me a couple of months to get over the fear that, every time I went to my vehicle, I’d find my tires slashed. In my case the police never found the culprit. He was an excellent liar when the police interviewed him, but I later heard that he was overheard bragging about the feat. Was it expensive? YES. But more than that it messed with my emotions and sense of security for a long time.

I got no lunch that day, my time was spent with a police officer giving him information, and I spent the rest of the shift wondering who would do this and why. It took me a couple of months to get over the anxiety that, every time I went to my vehicle, I’d find my tires slashed again. In my case the police never found the culprit.
