PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - It's a nice, family friendly neighborhood, but make no mistake, there's something sinister going on in Phoenix's Dynamite Mountain Ranch Community.
"It's just a horrible thing that somebody would think it's OK to come and destroy someone's personal property," said neighbor Jackie Croft.
Someone is painting black stripes along the side of vehicles.
According to neighbors, it's been going on for months.
The latest crime spree took place early Friday morning.
At least six vehicles were targeted near 24th Avenue and Norterra Parkway in north Phoenix.
A home security system took video of a man vandalizing an SUV.
The suspect can be seen walking up the sidewalk, spraying a car, then putting the can of paint in his pocket as he keeps walking.
Larry Engebretson is one of the recent victims.
His vehicles have been "striped" at least four times.
The HOA does not allow him to park his cars on the street in front of his house, so he parks them on a side street by a nearby park.
"To me it makes no sense, except it costs other people money and damage," said Engebretson. "It's not just our cars on the street, it's the whole neighborhood, with cars even getting sprayed while parked in driveways."
Most of the vehicles vandalized have either been parked on the street, or parked in driveways, with part of the car sticking out or blocking the sidewalk, which is not allowed.
Some neighbors think this the spray paint vandal is some kind of HOA vigilante trying to enforce HOA rules.
"I just want him to be charged," said Croft. "I want him to be prosecuted and I want him to have to pay back the damages. It's just not right."
Anyone with information is asked to call the Phoenix Police Department.
