Three reward signs are posted in the front yard and surveillance cameras are mounted around the north Tulsa home.

Angel Autry lives near E. 50th Place North by McLain High School and she said she has had enough of the vandalism in her neighborhood.

"I'm upset and I'm scared for my children."

FOX23 first spoke with Autry in May 2012 after she said that vandals had thrown rocks and pieces of asphalt at her home. The materials shattered windows and busted the siding on the side of her home. Copper wire was also stolen from the home.

In 2012, she and her neighbor vowed to keep a close eye on the neighborhood. One year later; the crime hasn't stopped.

Autry's home was vandalized again on Thursday evening.

"There were big pieces of asphalt that was thrown through our living room window and we had counted at least 6 gunshots that had gone off in the neighborhood," said Autry. "I threw my girls on the floor and I called 911."

Angel says that they haven't been able to identify who is responsible for the crimes so she installed an updated surveillance system to monitor her property.

Autry and her husband made reward signs out of plywood and posted them in their yard on Friday. The couple is offering $500 to anyone who will come forward with any information about the crime in the neighborhood.

"There are more of us good people than bad people and if we unite together we can put a stop to this," said Autry.
