BURBANK, Calif. (KABC) -- Police have arrested a woman accused of smashing windshields of parked cars in Los Angeles County using bricks.

Police identified the suspect as Lisa Jones, 30. She was booked at LAPD's West L.A. station on suspicion of felony vandalism.

Investigators made the arrest around noon Wednesday. They say they didn't find a brick in her car, but there were other items tying her to the crime. Additional details of the arrest were not immediately available.

Jones' alleged crimes stretch from Venice to Woodland Hills to downtown L.A.

On Tuesday, some residents in the Burbank area fell victim to the brazen attacks and investigators believe it's by the same suspect. Police said three vehicles were vandalized off Brighton Street. Madai Bautista said the suspect threw a brick on the windshield of her van.

This follows several other people who came forward saying their cars were also damaged.

Authorities worked diligently to identify the suspect who was caught on video carrying out the attacks. Newly obtained footage showed a clear picture of the suspect.

A couple in Woodland Hills spoke out after seeing ABC7's story Monday of similar incidents in West L.A. and Venice.

"Shocked this morning. I wake up, turn on ABC7...and there's a big moment all about this woman. I yell up to my wife 'Amy the brick person is on television,'" Dave Goodman said.

Konstantin Ivonin says his car was keyed in a parking garage in downtown L.A. in March.

Police said a motive for the attacks are unclear.

Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to contact the Los Angeles Police Department immediately.
