NAUGATUCK — At least 11 vehicles had their windows smashed sometime after midnight Friday and Saturday morning, police said.

Police received nearly a dozen complaints of broken car windows in the morning, when people discovered the damage. Broken windows were reported on Phoenix Avenue, High Street, Locust Street, John Street, Johnson Street, Auburn Street, Albion Street and Union City Road. All of the cars were parked on the side of the road.
