TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Police and federal agents are investigating 34 acts of vandalism in Tucson that go back to 2013. The crimes target utility and construction property, including power and gas lines.

The Arizona Daily Star reports (https://bit.ly/1QynqVs ) that it’s not clear whether the incidents are linked, but most of the vandalism occurred in the east and southeast parts of the city.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is working with Tucson police. Police department spokeswoman Sgt. Kimberly Bay says people should call 911 if they notice suspicious activity, like construction equipment being used in early morning hours in areas where there shouldn’t be work crews.

The crimes include 13 incidents when construction equipment was stolen and used to damage other property.

No injuries have been reported.
