Vandals strike Claremore auto dealers

Local businessman Chris Pruitt examines the damage to one of the vehicles on his Claremore lot, following a wave of weekend vandalisms.

A Rogers County used auto dealer is cleaning up the damage today following a bout of vandalism on several vehicles on his Claremore lot.

Chris Pruitt, who co-owns Chris Pruitt Auto Sales in Claremore, said that most of the vehicles on his lot were vandalized late Saturday and Sunday night, including the slashing of tires on up to 14 vehicles.

Pruitt said he estimates the damage to be around $10,000.

Pruitt said that vehicles at the nearby Smalygo Auto also suffered vandalism and that he and Smalygo owner Kelly Smalygo are offering a combined $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the vandals.

A full story about the vandalisms will appear in Tuesday’s Claremore Daily Progress.
