DUNCAN, Oklahoma --  Over the past month, vandals have been out in full force in the town of Duncan. Police say they've hit a dozen businesses.

Duncan Police have followed up on some leads, but have not yet identified any prime suspects.  Sgt. Donny Foraker is heading up the senior center's investigation. 

"It's not right when they break into my house, my car, a business downtown, or whatever," said Foraker.  "But it seems like it's a little different when it's a senior citizens building."

The vandals left obscenities written on the walls of the center's office, and even left a message that read " Don't arrest anymore or else."

The center sees at least five hundred seniors a week, and most of them have their own ideas of justice for the vandals when they are caught.  One senior had the most popular idea. 

"We need to turn 'em loose to the senior citizens," she said.  "Let them take care of 'em."

The vandals also hit some cars and a restaurant within 100 yards of the senior center.
