Q: My car got keyed. And the person who did it said over text I should watch out for my car. Is that enough evidence?
A: The police might want more. If there is surveillance footage that would be useful. But why not ask them?
A: If that is the ONLY evidence, it is almost certainly not enough to secure a civil judgment and absolutely not enough for a criminal conviction. What EXACTLY is the evidence? Was your car keyed the same day/night you received the text? Are there any witnesses or surveillance video who saw Defendant in the vicinity at the time it was keyed? Or who heard the Defendant say what he intended or what he did?
