Vandal keys ‘Obama’ into cars of Romney supporters

The search is on in Alta Loma for a vandal who carved "Obama" into a number of cars in a neighborhood with many Mitt Romney supporters.

The homes in the neighborhood near Rancho Cucamonga feature yard signs, many of them supporting presidential candidate Romney.

A number of the residents discovered Saturday that someone had used a key or sharp object to vandalize their vehicles. Some cars sustained damage to their interior upholstery.

"I know crime is everywhere, but it really doesn't affect you until it happens to you," said Ralph Sanchez, who lives in the neighborhood.

Sanchez's car was keyed and his upholstery was slashed by someone who clearly didn't approve of his choice in presidential candidates.

"They scrawled 'Obama' on top of the car," he said.

Other neighbors on Sanchez's street reported vandalism and theft.
