The Larimer County Sheriff's Office (LCSO) is searching for suspects involved with a series of recent incidents in Berthoud.

According to a Facebook post from LCSO, suspects have been throwing water balloons off the overpass on W County Road 10E, causing "significant damage" to six vehicles over the past few weeks.

The incidents have not caused any injuries, but deputies in Berthoud have been unable to locate the suspects.

"Dropping objects into traffic isn't just a harmless prank. It has the potential to cause a crash, seriously damage property, and even cost lives," said Patrol Lieutenant Joshua Fast in the post. "We need our community members to help us identify those responsible so we can stop these dangerous incidents and prevent a tragedy."

This isn't the first time throwing objects has caused havoc in Colorado in 2023.
