SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - Police are investigating a string of vandalism incidents in the Shepherdstown area Wednesday night.

The first incident occurred about 11 a.m. on Billmeyer Road when someone used a wood splitting tool to damage a door on a house, said Jesse Jones, chief deputy of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department.

The tool, a heavy, long-handed hammer, was then hurled through a window and landed on a rocking chair, Jones said.

At about 6:30 a.m. Thursday, the sheriff's department began getting calls about vandalism incidents in the Heatherfields and Chaplain's Choice subdivisions, Jones said.

In many of the cases, windows were smashed on cars, Jones said.

Jones said the incidents may be related.
