The homeowners called Eagle Police just after 9 p.m. Wednesday after they went to their new residence on Newbury Court and discovered the damage.

It appears someone used a ladder to get into the home through a window on the second floor. The vandalism happened sometime between 6 and 9 p.m. Wednesday.

Anyone with information should call Ada County Sheriff’s Office dispatchers at 377-6790.

The crime of felony malicious injury to property is punishable by up to five years in prison and a $1,000 fine.
