“Together, we will find whoever is responsible for this,” Mayor Jacobs promised the media.

“If the person out there that did this is watching this, please turn yourself in,” Officer Williams declared. “It’s not worth it, because we will find you today. And I promise that.”

If you live in the area and spot a vehicle that fits the above description, please call 911 and report them immediately.
