Vandals Caught On Camera, Homeowner Seeks Answers

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)-- One family says they're determined to find who's responsible for vandalizing their home.

They obtained surveillance footage they hope will help investigators track the vandals down.

Kyle Hagen and his family got woken abruptly a little before 4:30 Saturday morning.

"One of them knocked on our door three times really loud," said Hagen, the homeowner. "We jumped out of bed and looked out the window and saw that the pot was already broken over the walk here and dirt was everywhere and pot shards."

The Hagen's surveillance system caught what appeared to be four teenagers, with shirts covering their faces, breaking a flower pot and one man even urinated on their porch.

"That type of behavior is just low class," Hagen said. "That just goes beyond the good standard of any type of person with any kind of self respect for other people..that just shows that they have no respect for anybody."

This isn't the first times the Hagen's have been targeted. In the roughly two and half years they've lived in the home, they've had several similar incidents.

"At this address a number of times," Hagen said. "A couple years ago somebody broke our pumpkins against the door...another time somebody threw some fecal matter on to the porch as well."

It was an incident last year that prompted the Hagen's to get the surveillance system. Now they're hoping it helps police track these guys down.

"You know I'm trying to protect my family here. I want to be safe," Hagen said. "I mean, I don't wish any harm to come to them but, they just need to be punished for that type of behavior. That's unacceptable in this town.

If you think you recognize anyone in that surveillance footage you're asked to contact Lexington Police
