FARMINGTON, N.M. -- While the pictures may look funny, Barbara Charles isn't laughing.

"As I came out I just started to cry," she said. "I love this car."

Saturday morning, Charles says she found her car on its side in the driveway of her Farmington home.

"It's such a rude thing to do, sense less," she said.

Charles said neighbors heard glass breaking around midnight, but didn't think anything of it.

In the morning, they saw the car on its side and realized what happened.

Charles says her car has less than 7,000 miles on it and it won't be cheap to fix.

"The damages are over $6,000," she said. "I hope that these folks are caught because I don't want them to do it to somebody else."

Farmington police found fingerprints from five or six people on the Fiat.

She hopes it's just a matter of time before police catch the car tippers, or maybe one of the tippers with a guilty conscience will turn over the others.
