RIVERVIEW, Fla. — More than 30 vehicles were damaged by vandals early Monday morning.

Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is looking for two light-skinned male teenagers or young adults, possibly driving a silver, four-door sedan in relation to the crimes.

At about 6:15 a.m., multiple residents in the South Cove subdivision of Riverview reported finding the windows of their vehicles smashed in.

At least 15 had broken windows and other substantial damage worth of felony criminal mischief charges. One of those vehicles was an HCSO unit assigned to the court process section.

Deputies say the cars appeared to have been damaged with objects similar to a baseball bat or masonry bricks.

The incidents happened in the 11000 block of Misty Isle Lane and the 13000 block of Evening Sunset Lane, both in Riverview.

As of 2 p.m. Monday, the total number of damaged vehicles was 33.
