Three people have been arrested after more than 100 vehicles were vandalized with various racial, religious, ethnic and sexual orientation slurs, Prince William County police said.

Early Thursday morning police responded to destruction of property complaints on Wedgwood Drive, Trundle Place, Quail Run Lane, and Remington Road in Manassas.

A washable soap marker was used to write slurs on vehicles in the area, police said.

The victims were completely random and drugs and alcohol were involved, according to police. 

Nathan Anthony McNeel, 21, Caitlin Marie Pilkington, 18,  and Edward Raul Madrid, 20, were arrested and charged with destruction of property and unlawful entry with intent to commit a hate crime, police said.

A fourth suspect, Adrian Mark Owens, 18, was still on the loose Friday afternoon, police said.

Even though the damage was minimal, police said they were treating the incidents very seriously.
