RENO, Nev. (KRNV & -- Reno Police are looking for the culprits who threw furniture off an overpass onto a street, causing a crash.

Police believe a group of people may have been filming themselves tossing items off the Wells Avenue overpass bridge onto Fourth Street. Just after midnight Sunday, an SUV suffered damage to its rear roof after a television was thrown off the overpass and landed on top of the vehicle. The driver was not injured.

Reno Police said they soon discovered someone had thrown large vehicle parts, a large television and a couch from the bridge. Officers noticed a television in the road at the same location a week earlier.

If you have any information, please call Secret Witness at 322-4900.

They should receive their own punishment by standing at the bottom of this bridge while things are thrown off at them. Maybe this would deter them from practicing such cruel ventures. If they are this bored, they should be made to lift furniture all day long without pay for about six months or so to do their time when caught. Hope some judge see's my point of view as punishment. They have been lucky so far as to not be caught if someone does get injured from their lowsy schemes.
