justelope:  Get a security camera. Our cable company actually provides them for a fee and you can watch live stream on their website.

 

ETA: then I’d show the police the footage and hopefully they can find the person. It may be just some teenager being a jerk but I’d be flippin pissed if someone spray painted my car. And with the messages being threatening you don’t want to come home one day to your house burnt down.

This has happened to me once before many years ago. I did some sleuth work and was able to figure out who it was with solid evidence and then presented it to the police because they really don’t do too much if you don’t have proof and most of the time they blow off incidents like these because no one is being physically hurt. It’s truly scary to go through this and takes a mental toll on those who experience it. I hope you get down to the bottom of it soon. Perhaps, install a camera outside your homes?

I have four words for you: cameras. Lots of them.

justelope:  Yeah, if that were me I’d definitely get security cameras and probably some home security system as well. I just watched a TV show about someone who harassed someone who bought the home she wanted to buy. Then you’d have evidence for the police. Can you use research the name Sophie to see who may have lived there before you or the neighbor?? Too weird.

justelope:  it turned out to be someone we knew who was clearly mentally unstable and had a jealousy issue. I found out on social media and tied it all together. Low and behold that person was arrested but knew someone in the police force so they still proceeded to mess with us and even caused physical harm on me.

I agree with PPs, motion lights might scare off someone vandalizing.

On a much smaller level this happened to us a couple months ago. Along with the PPs, motion light, security system and sign in the front yard, police reports (you can do them online, takes 5 minutes). Maybe get a dog. That is very creepy
