WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. — Four people are believed to be responsible for the damage to cars in two parking lots at Lutheran Medical Center in Wheat Ridge, according to the police department.

Investigators with the Wheat Ridge Police Department (WRPD) used security video from the hospital to determine that four people were responsible for damaging eight cars and stealing one early Wednesday morning.

The hospital located at 8300 West 38th Ave. has several employee parking lots and WRPD got a call about damage to cars in one of them around 4:30 a.m. Wednesday. Police said security footage showed that the vandalism occurred around 1:30 a.m.

More vandalism was reported in a second employee parking lot, a WRPD spokesperson said security footage showed the damage occurred at around 2:15 a.m. but was not noticed until later.
