The Dallas Police Association posted photos showing the damaged cars via Twitter, according to Prescotte Stokes of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Two of the vehicles, a black and white 4-door sedan and a white SUV, bore huge circular cracks in the front and side windows.
Dallas Police Department spokesperson Diana Browning said officers arrested Dallas-resident Gregory Hal Simpson at approximately 8:30 a.m. Sunday in connection to the incident.
Browning said Simpson entered the Central Patrol substation parking lot around 5 a.m., smashing 12 marked police cars with a sledgehammer. According to police he entered through an unsecured gate near the City Detention Center at the Dallas Marshal’s Office.
The Dallas Police Association posted about the incident again on Twitter, saying the central substation parking lot in which the incident took place is still unsecured.
“These parking lots need to be secure,” the organization stated.
Simpson is charged with criminal mischief with a loss of more than $2,500 but less than $30,000, a state jail felony. He faces a state jail term between 180 days and two years. He also faces a potential fine of no more than $10,000.
