Do not park on 12th Street between Jackson and Snyder. There are no homes on this block (vacant building on one side and church parking lot on the other) Came across a young couple from out of town, visiting their Uncle, with a shattered car window; they said nothing was stolen. So this crime was just hostility – no motive.
