Watertown vandalism


Watertown police are stepping up efforts to combat vandalism in their community.

Last week, vandals broke the windows of four cars and three businesses using marbles and other projectiles.

``More than likely it's a group of kids going around shooting a slingshot," said Michael Lawn, Watertown police spokesman. ``The officers working the overnight shift are going to be looking more for those types of things . . . . We get all kinds of vandalism all the time, but this is different."

The vandalism was mentioned in a story in today's Globe about vandalism discovered yesterday at about 30 businesses in Arlington and Lexington along Massachusetts Avenue.
