Posted: Updated:

CHULA VISTA (CBS 8) - 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.

The vandalism was widespread, some cars that were targeted were on streets ranging from Santa Rita and East Palomar Street to the 1100 block of Barton Peak Drive and the 1100 block of Gustine Street and the 800 to 900 blocks of Camino Del Sol.

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

If you believe your vehicle was vandalized the past three days and you have not reported it, you are urged to call the Chula Vista Police Department.
