Bounty on tire-slashing vandals

Posted: March 20, 2012

AAA Mid-Atlantic is offering $2,500 for information leading to the arrest of whoever is responsible for slashing tires on parked cars in the Mayfair and Tacony neighborhoods in recent weeks.

Mayfair residents awoke Sunday morning to find that tires were slashed on three cars parked on Erdrick Street near Princeton Avenue.

"We're concerned about this as a crime, and obviously we respond to all kinds of tire related incidents," said Jenny Robinson, an AAA spokeswoman.

The company is funding the reward through the Citizens Crime Commission, and tipsters are asked to call 215-546-TIPS (8477)

In total, $10,000 is now being offered for information leading to the tire-slashing hoods.

The Fraternal Order of Police offered $5,000 on March 13, and Mayor Nutter's office offered $2,500 for information on the vandals.
