The North Texas Crime Commission is offering up to a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the people responsible for a vandalism spree in Carrollton.

Last summer, at least 120 vehicles throughout the city were damaged during the weekend of June 30 and July 1, according to Carrollton police. The vehicles had their windows smashed and their tires cut.

Anyone with information can remain anonymous and still be eligible to collect the reward by calling the Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-877-373-TIPS (8477) or by submitting a tip online at

No description is available, but Carrollton police believe the suspects drove a 1999 to 2001 model white four-door Honda Accord.
