SAN DIEGO – San Diego Police Department’s Mid City station was vandalized with thrown rocks, which broke windows on the building and on private vehicles owned by police officers Saturday.

The building, at 4310 Landes Street, was damaged at 3:20 a.m. as rocks broke the front windows of the lobby and community center. Four personal vehicles owned by officers who worked the overnight shift were also damaged, SDPD Chief Shelley Zimmerman said.

Two police officers were inside the building Saturday night, but were not injured.

Thousands of dollars worth of damage was done to the building and cars, police said. Zimmerman pointed out that taxpayer funding would not be used to repair the damages to the vehicles.

This was the second vandalism to the station in the past week, police said.  The first incident involved a BB gun pellets and the second was rocks, Zimmerman said.  It was not immediately known if the two incidents were related.

The police chief said they were reviewing surveillance video and had at least one lead on a suspect. As of Saturday, police did not have intentions of releasing any video to the public.

There was no description or additional information on the suspect/suspects.
