Library vandalized again

WARREN — For the second time in a month, vandals over the weekend threw rocks at windows of the main branch of the Warren-Trumbull County Public Library and vehicles belonging to the library.

Library Director Jim Wilkins told Warren police he and his staff encountered multiple shattered windows and two vehicles damaged.

A Chevrolet Express parked near the southeast side of the building had a damaged windshield, with officers observing various large rocks in the lot around the vehicle. The Chevy also had a shattered rear window, the report states.

Several drops of blood were also seen on the front hood of the vehicle. Blood also was found on a southeast corner window, which had been shattered. Blood samples were collected as evidence, the report states.

A Ford Transit Connect parked next to the Chevy had small cracks and chips on the rear driver-side window, the report states, also apparently damaged by rocks.

Shattered windows also were found on the north and east sides of the building.

On July 2, police investigated a similar vandalism at the main library on Mahoning Avenue NW. Police did not say if they believe the two incidents were related.
