ST. CHARLES COUNTY ( -- Nearly 30 RVs and campers were vandalized in St. Charles County over the weekend.

Police said they received a call regarding property damage and theft at Bropfs Cave Springs Boat and RV Storage on Veterans Memorial Parkway on Sunday around 1:30 p.m. When officers got to the scene, they saw several RVs and campers with smashed windows, cut locks, and broken doors and screens.

Investigators said they believe the suspect entered the gated lot by cutting a hole in the fence.

Vassie Grant has stored two semi-trucks at the lot for over two years and said he was one of the lucky ones.

“It’s kind of heartbreaking because most people in here do the same thing I do, they’re hard workers and you think you can have a secure lot but yet you come up here and get this," Grant said.

Employees at Bropfs Storage staff said they are working to tighten security moving forward. Right now, the lot is secured with barbed wire and customers must have a passcode to get in.

Grant said increased lighting and cameras would also help.

“I still feel safe, you’re going to get this type of incident anywhere you go, it could happen on any given day," Grant said.

While Grant’s trucks were untouched, he said every truck parked next to his was broken into.

Police stress this is an active investigation and ask anyone with information to contact their department at (636) 949-3002.
