BOONE COUNTY, Ind. -- The Boone County Sheriff is working with law enforcement detectives in Illinois to determine if an arrest made in a string of damaged vehicles along an interstate there is connected with the recently damaged vehicles along I-65.
Detectives in Illinois have arrested a truck driver in connection with more than three dozen similar cases along I-74 over the past several weeks. According to the local news organizations there, Kevin Casey, 53, was arrested Friday after police say he admitted to using slingshots and ball bearings to target vehicles along the interstate.
Indiana investigators say they have now had more than 20 victims come forward claiming to have damage to their vehicle's windshields and windows while driving along I-65 between Indianapolis and Boone County but they are still trying to determine if Casey was in the area during any of those incidents.
No injuries have been reported in Indiana but a 3-year-old child was injured when a window was shattered on a minivan in Illinois.
The Boone County Sheriff's Department says they are working with law enforcement in Illinois to use the GPS on Casey's vehicle and phone and determine if he has been in Indiana during any of the reported incidents.
It is unknown what is being thrown at vehicles here in Indiana, but the Boone County Sheriff's Office, Lebanon Police Department, and Whitestown Metropolitan Police Department are warning drivers in the area to remain vigilant because no arrests have been made.
