Vandalism

I am so pissed right now! We discovered that someone had vandalized our pool last night. The first clue was an empty beer can on my back porch rail. I thought one of my son-in-laws had left it. Then I found an empty sunscreen bottle laying behind the pool house. I had just bought this bottle Friady and thought my grandsons had emptied it. But then we started finding some of our floats had holes in them and the sunscreen had been dumped into the pool along with some bags of silica gel. The two white blobs in the photo are sunscreen.

Then I found two cushions had been burnt...

We called the sheriff's department and an officer came and made a report. Who and why is someone targeting us? I hope they are caught before Justin finds out who is responsible because if Justin catches them, they will be picking buckshot out of their ass!
Looks like we will be investigating into some type of security system and possibly a dog!
Damn you!

People are so damn mean! It is just awful how you work hard to get the things you enjoy then some punkass comes along and totally messes it up! I hope they catch them, no wait a minute, I hope Jason catches them.

That's really terrible, Charlotte. I'm so sorry that happened. And what a pain in the ass too! If/When you find out who is responsible, I would go after them in small claims court also and make them pay for cleaning up the mess and replacing your property. It's not expensive to file a claim at all. Check into it if the culprits are found.

So sorry..Must be some kids..surely adults would not be doing this. I guess some people just are just mean and selfish. I hope you find them soon and I agree with Pam..go after them in small claims court. Hey I have a German shepard..good breed for a watch dog..looks scary but if well trained will only be scary on command.. :) just a thought

I am really sorry you all had to go through this... I think the best is the new cameras, with night vision. You can buy them even at Lowe's, for very little money. The police can do little with out evidence... A video that can be triggered with motion sensors is perfect.

I hope you can find the little butts... and that their parents have enough money to pay for the damages...

That is a scary thing to happen. Most likely it is teenagers after having too much beer. The police tell us not much they can do. It is very frustrating.

I first thought you had some teens drinking to much beer too with the left over containers and all. But, tearing up your cushions and dumping stuff in your pools is just pure vandalism. I also hope they catch them and prosecute fully! So sorry to hear of this! It's totally unacceptable!

People are sooo rude and don't care about others property nowadays :( I would have been very pissed off as well if I were you... I hope you all figure out who did that and make them pay for it...
