A pair of vandals in Denver, Colorado were recently caught red-handed keying the side of a two-week old Tesla Model Y. Fortunately the incident was caught on Sentry Mode, and the owner is hoping the crystal clear footage of the two suspects will help lead to an arrest.
The vandalism took place on the Labor Day weekend in Thornton, a municipality just outside Denver. The owner, who had just taken delivery of her Model Y two weeks earlier, returned to her car from a short shopping trip to find two large scratches down the driver’s side of her car.
Upon reviewing the Sentry Mode footage, a pair of suspects can be clearly seen approaching the car and using their keys to leave two deep gouges in the pearl white paint. The owner, who didn’t want to be identified, said she is releasing the footage not only to hopefully identify the suspects, but also make sure they don’t do it again to someone else.
“I was shocked, my jaw dropped then I was immediately upset [when I watched the video]. If you are going to do something this reckless and stupid you probably have done other things like this before or are more apt to commit another crime. So I hope we can catch them and prevent more of this in the future,” she told CBS Denver.
Thornton Police have an open investigation into the case, and are asking anyone who might recognize the suspects to contact them.
