HADLEY TWP. — Lapeer County Sheriff’s Dept. deputies are looking for as many as two drivers following a series of incidents around 2 a.m. Sunday involving motorists having windshields smashed by objects thrown from passing vehicles.

Det./Sgt. Jason Parks said none of the four victims were injured, but the thrown rocks or bricks caused considerable damage. Lapeer County Sheriff Scott McKenna said he finds the potential danger to motorists very concerning.

Motorists in Hadley Township on Baldwin Road near Sutton Road, Pratt Road west of Baldwin Road and Pratt Road at Hadley Road all said they were hit by objects thrown from a black car that was either a Honda Civic or a Chevrolet Lumina.

Additionally, a driver of late 1990s model Chevrolet Lumina, this time reportedly in a white-colored vehicle, is suspected of throwing something at a Lapeer motorist on Hayes Road at Oregon Road.

McKenna said additional deputies will be assigned to patrol in these areas in both marked and unmarked units in attempts to locate, identify, and arrest those responsible before someone is suriously hurt or worse. In the meantime motorists are urged to use caution when traveling during the early morning hours.

Anyone with any information about these incidents are urged to call the Lapeer County Sheriff’s Dept. at 810- 664-1801 or Lapeer County Sheriff’s Tip Line at 810-245-1374.
