Two teenagers arrested for allegedly shooting BB’s at cars

CHULA VISTA (CNS) – Two 16-year-old boys were in custody Wednesday on
suspicion of using BB guns to vandalize at least 42 vehicles over three nights
in southeastern Chula Vista, police said.

The teens were arrested Tuesday on suspicion of multiple counts of
vandalism in connection with the vandalism spree that occurred earlier this
week, Chula Vista police said in a statement.

Police also searched the teens' homes on Tuesday and allegedly found a
BB gun and a gallon-sized bag of pellets in one suspect's home and four
additional BB guns in the second suspect's home.

The teens were identified as suspects after detectives reviewed
surveillance video that showed the license plate of a suspicious vehicle seen
in the area of the vandalism spree, police said.

Damage to the vehicles, which included broken windows, was in the
thousands of dollars.
