A Bedford neighborhood is cleaning up after vandals hit at least 15 homes in the area overnight Friday.
Police said the homes were hit in the Village of Oak Park neighborhood.
The vandals threw corn, paint, mustard, ketchup and other items on cars and garage doors between midnight and 5 a.m., police said.
One victim said the vandals had to walk up his driveway to commit the crime, a brazen act, he said.
Many neighbors were helped out by a woman vandalized herself, Tina Kitts.
Kitts owns T.A.S.K. Auto Eco Wash, a car detailing business, and had the right tools to clean cars up quickly.
"With this sun, this stuff will bake on fast," Kitts said.
With a hand-cart full of soaps and waxes, Kitts was able to help many of the people on her street.
"We just got the whole neighborhood together and started cleaning up the cars everybody pitched in cleaning each one, one by one," Kitts said.
Neighbors credit Kitts with saving them from having permanently damaged cars.
No word on what charges the vandals may face if they're found.
