TULSA -- Police are investigating after multiple vehicles had windows shot out with a BB gun in south Tulsa.

Officers were dispatched to the area near 56th and Memorial. When they arrived they said they found several cars vandalized.

Officers said there are as many as 40 vehicles that sustained damage. The vandalism ranged from Sheridan to Mingo and from 51st Street to 81st Street.

“People got a lot of stuff to do and now this car is going to be sitting around for a while,” said resident Manjoe Borlay.

Borlay's back window is no more, and his frustration is growing.

“You got people who work hard for whatever they have you know, and they don't want people going around damaging their's not a good thing,” he said.

Folks are reporting a white sedan driving around and shooting at windows early Friday morning.

“It's going to be 168 dollars to replace the windows,” said Brandi Edwards. “This is not don't realize how many people are having to put out money now for this.”

“With the amount of damage this individual did, they're looking at a potential felony,” said Tulsa Police Officer Leland Ashley.

Police began knocking on dozens of doors around 3 a.m. looking for victims, video...even the culprits themselves.

“We're hoping someone will get to talking and thinking it's funny and maybe tell a friend what they did,” said Ashley.

Glass shop owners like Russell Black of Glass Doctors of Tulsa received more than 20 shattered window jobs Friday morning.

“It's not raining or anything but I think that may be going to change here in the future so that makes it an even bigger nuisance,” he said.

It's a nuisance that's left Borlay hoping police find the suspects who have no respect for his property.

“They need to be that message can get out there. Whoever's thinking about doing this cannot do it to anybody anymore,” he said.


Police are still collecting reports and any surveillance video that could be useful in identifying the culprits.

If you have any information for police, you're asked to call Tulsa Crimestoppers at 918-596-COPS.
