There have been several other incidents this week and police anticipate more.

Lt. Randy Pickett, Bountiful Police Dept.: "We actually see a bigger increase after Halloween when people start getting rid of the pumpkins. Kids just grab them and start throwing them out."

Police believe different groups of teenagers are responsible.

There will be more officers on patrol during the graveyard shift to try and deter such vandalisms. They say, if possible, park your car in a driveway or garage.
