Police: Boys Smash Windows Of 140 Vehicles

MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 23 (UPI) — Three boys arrested in Minneapolis allegedly smashed windows of more than 140 vehicles, causing $100,000 to $200,000 damage, police said.

The suspects — ages 11, 15 and 16 — were taken into custody about 10:15 p.m. Monday when police spotted a vehicle that matched the description of the one they were in at 38th Street and Columbus Avenue, WCCO-TV, Minneapolis, reported.

Police said they found evidence in the vehicle linking them to vandalism that occurred Sunday and Monday nights..

Minneapolis police Sgt. William Palmer would not elaborate on the evidence or the vehicle the suspects were in, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.

Police had said Sunday the vandalism may have been caused by a baseball bat wielded by two males who had been in a truck.

The three boys are suspected of vandalizing at least 126 vehicles in the Corcoran, Standish and Ericsson neighborhoods Sunday and another 14 vehicles Monday night in a 10-square-block area between between 27th and 37th avenues and 34th and 44th streets.

A fourth boy was seen “running frantically towards the vehicle,” a police report said. Palmer said he then ran away and was not arrested.

The boys were processed and released from the Hennepin County Juvenile Detention Center, WCCO said.
