47 BNSF locomotives vandalized in Wichita Falls

Senior Special Agent Steven Wells with BNSF Police said the damage included broken windows and broken lights, and someone also set off fire extinguishers inside some of the locomotives.

I'm surprised they don't lock up the cabs, at the least.... it's one of the few things CN seems to be able to do when they're storing units...??
