More than 100 tires have been slashed at used car lots in Georgetown. 

J & B Auto Mart, Credit Cars and Everybody’s Auto Sales are all victims.  Early Thursday morning Top Gun Auto Sales was added to that list.  Now one manager is offering a reward.

Just after three o’clock Thursday morning Top Gun surveillance video shows a man running through the parking lot and slashing tires on used cars that are for sale.  26 tires total were slashed at Top Gun.

Sometime late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning 71 tires on 22 used vehicles were slashed at J & B Auto Mart.

“It looked like a knife, knife cuts, all of them,” said Tom Jako, owner of J&B Auto Mart.

About three weeks ago a similar situation happened at Everybody’s Auto Sales.

“Everything on the front line and everything on my sides, my tires were slashed” said Robert Taylor, general manager of Everybody’s Auto Sales.  “I don't know what they're trying to tell us but something is going on.”

It’s about $20,000.00 just in damaged tires at these three used car lots.  Jako is now offering a $1,000.00 reward from his own money in hopes of catching the vandal.

“It's got to stop somewhere, we're all just trying to make a living,” said Jako.

Georgetown Police say they don’t have any suspects but think these crimes could be connected.
