Woman thought of vandalizing numerous cars at Bellagio parking lot


Las Vegas City cops said they are investigating after a minimum of a dozen cars were vandalized at the Bellagio parking garage Tuesday.

Officers reacted to the occurrence simply after 1 p.m. at the property on the Las Vegas Strip.

Inning Accordance With Laura Meltzer, of Las Vegas Metro cops, Christina Deswood broke windows on lorries. Deswood was nabbed for hurting and tampering with a vehicle.

Laura Chapman was one of the victims. She stated she came to her automobile and saw a fire extinguisher sticking out from the shattered rear window.

MGM Resorts International released a statement to FOX5 on the incident:

“Bellagio security responded quickly upon learning of this occurrence and fixed it quietly. No one was hurt and Las Vegas cops have a suspect in custody. We informed and assisted the owners of the automobiles and will continue to work closely with authorities.”

One of the victims, Laura Chapman, stated she was just shopping on Thursday afternoon when she returned to her car destroyed.

“I’m going up the elevator and this man says, ‘Did your car survive?'” she said. “And I’m like, ‘What are you speaking about?'”

That’s the minute Chapman knew something was incorrect.

“I ran over to my lorry and there it was, this big fire extinguisher in the back windshield,” she said. “I was the last one apparently so she put it in there real excellent … Broke the speaker in my car. There’s still glass in my cars and truck right now and the windscreen was replaced. There’s glass all over.”

Chapman called it a particularly tough hit because she just bought her car this year.

“Took me four years to conserve as much as purchase this automobile,” she stated. “And I purchased it in February. And now we’ve got damages. It’s not fair.”

She needed to leave her cars and truck at the hotel overnight up until a window repair work business might come out to fix it.

On top of the physical damage, Chapman is left questioning exactly what Deswood was believing and why her cars and truck was a target.

“It’s sort of aggravating due to the fact that I just purchased the cars and truck and there wasn’t a scratch on it,” she stated. “So that’s emotionally a little bit difficult to deal with.”

Despite the fact that she’s left with the mess, Chapman stated the Bellagio is covering the cost. So she will continue to keep shopping and parking here.

“They made a bad scenario end up the very best it might be,” she stated.

Since Wednesday afternoon, Deswood faced one charge of damaging a car. Cops stated they are still aiming to connect with victims. It is up to the vehicle owners if they wish to press charges or simply file an insurance coverage claim.
