Seven vans were vandalized outside the Warren County Production Services Unlimited on Columbus Avenue Wednesday.

The vehicles are used to transport people with special needs to and from work sites and to various outings with the county's Board of Developmental Disabilities. 

The damage was noticed by a staff worker Wednesday morning.

"I think it's terrible," said Megan Manuel, Superintendent at Warren County Board of Developmental Disabilities. "Obviously this is providing programs and services to people with disabilities and it's unfortunate that this puts a kink in those services as well as spending tax payer dollars to fix the window and get the vehicles repaired." 

"The vehicles make our participants days and lives a little better.” said Russell Forrester, who works for the organization.

The damaged windows and windshields are expected to be fixed by Thursday.

No word on estimated damage.

“Vandalism is bad no matter who it happens to but when it’s done to the most vulnerable ones of us, it becomes something more,” said Forrester. “I don’t care if it’s kids or adults, it’s just wrong and somebody should answer for their mistake.”
