Longview police officers were dispatched early Monday morning following a report of vandalism near Columbia Street and Princeton Street.
Police believe some type of paint was used to write on victims' vehicles. Some of the vehicles were also egged.
"We received a call reference to criminal mischief in the area of Columbia-Pronceton streets, when we got over there we found at least 20 vehicles that had been vandalized overnight," says Longview police officer Kristie Brian.
In each case it was the same, foul language and symbols painted on the windows and doors , and for some this is not their first run in with vandalism.
"I guess about 2 months ago somebody drove through my yard spend my yard up. I was asleep and an officer rang the doorbell and I came to the door and he said somebody's vandalized your truck," says victim Billy Sanders.
Nothing was stolen, no vehicles were broken into.
Police advise citizens to park their cars in their driveways or garages and to report any suspicious activity they may observe. Police also remind citizens it is illegal to park a car on a city street overnight between sunset and sunrise.
