Cars, Shop Vandalized With BB Gun

LINDEN – Three vehicles parked on Helen Street, as well as a North Wood Avenue shop were shot with BB pellets over the weekend, police said.

On Sunday, March 7, officers responded to the 400 block of Helen Street to investigate a report of a vehicle damaged by BB pellets, according to Linden Police Detective Lt. James Sarnicki. While at the scene, they were informed that two additional vehicles were also damaged.


The three vehicles, a 2006 Nissan, 2003 Ford wagon, and a 1997 Ford wagon, had windows damaged by BB’s sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning, Sarnicki said.
