Olathe Police say approximately 45 vehicles were damaged by vandals sometime overnight in Olathe.

Four of those vehicles were damaged in front of Tara Polca's home. She said both of her neighbor's have damaged vehicles as well.

Before 7 a.m. Friday, damaged vehicles could be seen on both sides of each street hit. Some of the damaged vehicles were parked in driveways, only feet from windows on the homes.

Police say they have not heard of any damage to homes.

The damage was first reported around 4:15 a.m., in the 1200 block of E. Johnston Street when a resident stepped outside to find their vehicle's window shattered and called police. Arriving officers found at least four vehicles on the street with damaged windows.
