Laurel County Sheriff John Root is investigating more than 30 acts of vandalism committed around the county this week, most of them Christmas night, including bricks and timbers thrown through vehicle windows; rocks, bricks and a shovel thrown through home windows; and smashed mailboxes.

Sheriff's deputies are looking for a tan van, but other vehicles might be involved, Root said in a media release.

If anyone has information about the crimes, or if they have surveillance videos or photos, Root is asking them to call the Laurel County Sheriff's Office at (606) 864-6600 or (606) 878-7000. No arrests had been made as of Friday morning, the sheriff's office said.
