SENECA FALLS, N.Y. -- Police in Seneca County are investigating tens of thousands of dollars of damage to number of vehicles at a Seneca Falls auto dealership.

Employees of Bill Cram Chevrolet discovered the damage when the dealership opened for business on Monday. Police believe the vandals struck sometime Saturday night or Sunday morning.

More than 50 vehicles sustained deep scratches to doors and fenders causing an estimated $50,000 to $75,000 worth of damage.

"I was surprised at how many vehicles were damaged and the extent, cost associated and specifically how they damaged each individual vehicle," said Stu Peenstra, Seneca Falls Police Chief.

"It's just metal that's damaged and trying to take a positive and not let it beat you down. This isn't going to stop us. If they want to stop us from selling vehicles we're going to keep going," said Amy Cram, dealership owner.

Police believe this is not a random act and Bill Cram Chevrolet was the intended target. A $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible.
