The Mendota Heights Community Criminal Apprehension Fund is offering a $1,000 reward to anyone with information about several vandalism incidents in the city.

Police say from June 26 to July 1, several homes and vehicles were vandalized. Private property was spray painted with racial slurs and sexual content, and the vehicles were keyed.

Most of the vandalism happened west of Interstate 35E and north of Highway 110.

Investigators suspect teens did the damage in the middle of the night and likely knew their targets based on the messages scrawled on certain homes.

People with information can call the 24-hour tip line at 651-255-1170.
