Iowa City police received a surge of criminal mischief and vandalism complaints over the weekend.

According to police statistics, officers took 21 reports related to vehicle windows and windshields being smashed between Feb. 4 and Monday.

The complaints come after a surge of vandalism cases in between November and December 2010, when Iowa City residents reported 48 cases of criminal mischief.

In the previous incidents, police say damage to mailboxes, yard lights, windows, and vehicles were reported.

Police have not confirmed whether the acts of vandalism are related.
