SANDY — Dozens of cars had their tires slashed Saturday evening during the Real Salt Lake soccer game, police said.

Between 30 and 40 cars had tires slashed near the intersection of 9400 South and 300 East, according to Sandy Police Sgt. Jason Nielsen. The amount of damage could lead to felony charges, he said.

Police believe most of the cars that were damaged belonged to people who were at the Real Salt Lake game at nearby Rio Tinto Stadium, Nielsen said. Investigators are looking into surveillance footage, but do not have any information about who slashed the tires as of Sunday morning, Nielsen said.

He did not know exactly how the tires were slashed or what was used to cut them.
