Police say nearly a dozen cars in Yonkers were vandalized overnight, and they believe the man who was responsible for the damage is in custody.

Police arrested 31-year-old Chris Deluca, of Yonkers, and charged him with felony criminal mischief and auto stripping.

They say Deluca was intoxicated and disorderly when he smashed nearly a dozen car windows along Alexander Avenue.
