Kevin Lavoie, children services public information officer, said surveillance video shows a single suspect vandalizing the vehicles at 3:30 a.m. Tuesday. As many as two of the agency's vehicles had all four tires slashed, he said.

The surveillance video has been given to the sheriff's office, he said.

Lavoie could not estimate a dollar amount on the damage, but said the social services agency has an operations budget to keep the fleet rolling. The vandalism has not hampered the agency from delivering services or executing daily operations, he said.

Vehicles belonging to children services are parked on an open lot at the agency, 3304 N. Main St., Lavoie said.
