Teens smearing feces on doors of Port Charlotte neighborhood

Posted: Updated:

Teen vandals are targeting the normally quiet Port Charlotte neighborhood South Gulf Cove.

Resident Monica Tracy's brand new home was targeted by teen vandals when they threw a brick through her lanai screen and smeared feces over her front door.

 “At first I was shocked. I haven’t heard of any damage happening out here before,” she said. “And then, of course, the second reaction is anger. Why would someone want to take a brand new beautiful home and destroy it?”

The Charlotte County Sheriff’s office said many homes are at the hands of teen vandals between the ages of 13 and 15.

The same vandalism happened at another home around the block.

Head of Neighborhood Watch Jerry Berg said residents should invest in security.
