MIDLAND- It all started around Halloween with random acts of vandalism, car windows and glass doors at businesses getting shot at and stealing. So far, 86 cases have been reported but now those criminals have been busted.

"We arrested one and the others turned themselves in at their parents house," Darin Clements, a Detective Sergeant with the Midland Police Department, said. 

Police say 17-year-old Ian Kepple, 18-year-old Joshua Iglesias, 17-year-old Isaac Brien and 18-year-old Kenneth Mansell have been charged with two counts of felony criminal mischief. Police say as the investigation continues more charges could be added on and the BB gun they were using didn't belong to them.

"They stole one of the handgun pellet guns at Walmart this past weekend and was using it yesterday (Wednesday) and they stole a second one at Academy yesterday (Wednesday) to continue with," Clements said.

Police say the guys were doing this just for fun and now authorities are asking for your help.

"If anybody that was a victim of this case, if they can send their estimates to us for the damage and repair cost so we can use it for the prosecution. If anybody happens to have any video of these guys, we need those as well," Clements said.

If you are a victim or have any information regarding the vandalism, you can call 432-685-7108 to report the crime or if you have tax estimates and a case number from damages because of these crimes you can fax them to 432-685-0536.
