Smoky Jennings Chevrolet suffers vandlism

5 18 17

During the weekend of May 6, around 20 tires were vandalized at Smoky Jennings Chevrolet in Palmyra. Those responsible went onto dealership property at night and caused $8,000-$11,000 worth of damage. It is suspected that the vandals used a cordless drill to put more than 120 holes in tires used on 18-wheelers.

Smoky Jennings Chevrolet’s truck shop manager Reggie Hamilton said, “Some of the holes ended up being about the size of the palm of your hand. It’s ridiculous. I’ve never seen anything like this before.”

Hamilton also said there is a $2,500 reward out for the arrest of the vandal. Macoupin and Montgomery County Crime Stoppers is also offering an additional $5,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest. Anyone with information may call Crime Stoppers at (800) 352-0136; submit an anonymous tip online at macmontcrimestoppers.com; or use a cell phone to text TIP722 and the message to CRIMES (274637).
