At least a dozen residents at one apartment complex woke up Wednesday morning to find the tires on their vehicles slashed. Police are now searching for those responsible.

It happened at the Atlas Apartments on Broadway near Rockhill in southeast Houston. Residents say 17 vehicles were hit in the overnight vandalism. Many of those vehicles had at least two tires slashed, many of them in covered parking lots. Residents say it's hard as the vandalism comes just before the holidays.

"Christmas is on its way, you know? Bills gotta be paid. But you gotta keep your transportation going to get to where you work," said resident Anitra Elmore.

"I don't have any money right now. I may not get the money," resident Antonio Castro said.

So far police have no motive, and no suspects have been named.
