Vandalism in Mountainhome 5/25/21

Vandalism. Just a heads up to people living near Spruce Cabin Rd, Henry Price, Cherry Lane, and other roads that are close. This evening 5/25 around midnight, I'm assuming, kids were throwing rocks at our windows. My husband turned the light on and they fled on foot. They also threw rocks at the car causing damage. I heard noises earlier in the evening but thought it was coming from inside the house. I'm assuming they were around the house checking it out not realizing someone was home. Police were called so reports could be filed.
