An 18-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a string of northeast Lincoln vandalisms earlier this month.

Cody Slama was arrested at his Lincoln home Wednesday on suspicion of criminal mischief of $5,000 or more, Officer Angela Sands said.

On June 5, a string of vandalisms to vehicles and homes starting shortly after 3 a.m. caused more than $25,000 in damage. Witnesses said two or three people in a dark-colored hatchback vehicle were swinging a baseball bat, and possibly a golf club, at windows.

Police used video surveillance from businesses and homes to identify Slama and the car. On June 9, police located the vehicle in northeast Lincoln and the owner allowed officers to search the car.
