Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The teenagers arrested for shooting marbles at cars are out of police custody. But, detectives are still searching for more possible victims.
18-year-old twins Brandon & Bryce Sepe, along with five other teens, are accused of causing major damage to more than 20 cars in Henderson.
Most of the damage was done in the area of Boulder Highway and Sunset Road, as well as Stephanie Street and Warm Springs Road.
Police say they caught the teens responsible at a local Wal-mart, as two of them were trying to steal more marbles for their slingshots.
According to investigators, the teens would strike at random and called their acts of vandalism "missions." Those missions now have them facing some serious misdemeanor charges.
"I don't understand why they would do something like that," wonders Leticia Santana, a mother of three, who lives down the street from the Sepe brothers. "I don't want to blame the parents, but sometimes us parents really need to be aware of everything our kids do. Someone could have gotten hurt. I worry that marble sling shots are just the start of more trouble to come."
Henderson police are encouraging anyone who was a victim of similar attack to contact them at (702) 267-4750.
