Suspects sought in Ashland tire-slashing spree

ASHLAND — At least 10 vehicles had their tires slashed in a spree police say happened earlier this week.

And a couple days later, police have "absolutely no suspects or leads," according to Ashland police Deputy Chief Warren Hensman.

"No rhyme or reason," Hensman said. "There definitely was a spree of tires being slashed for some unknown reason."

Police believe the incidents occurred Sunday night and Monday morning. Victims began calling police to report the damage at just before 8 a.m. Monday. Two were reported on Seventh Street, three on B Street, and three on North Mountain Avenue — just around the corner from Ashland police headquarters — and one each on East Main Street and A Street.

"That's just the ones we were able to make contact with," Hensman said. "I would say there are more than that. We just have not heard from everybody."

Anyone with information about the incidents or believes their vehicle was also targeted should contact Ashland police at 541-488-2211.
