DEARBORN HEIGHTS, Mich. (AP) — The mayor of a Detroit suburb believes he was politically targeted by whoever punctured all the tires on three vehicles at his home.

Dearborn Heights Mayor Daniel Paletko says his family was preparing to leave for a Christmas church service when they found the damage Tuesday morning. He says the side walls on tires to his personal and city vehicles, along with his daughter’s car.

Paletko says he “absolutely” believes someone was trying to send him a message but he doesn’t know over what. The cars parked in Paletko’s driveway were the only ones along his block to be damaged.

He says a friend drove them to the church service.

The city of about 60,000 people is just west of Detroit.
