The investigation is continuing and Officers are pursuing some potentially viable leads. The total documented count of vehicles that had tires damaged is 74. (61 in Berkeley, 13 in Oakland) 

Last night, Berkeley community members who had returned home from the day’s activities called to report additional tires punctured, some of which had been documented earlier by officers who had not been able to contact the registered owners, thus we are in the process of getting an exact number of cars, vans and trucks for you.”
