Four students arrested, accused of dozens of vandalism cases in NW Harris County
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Four Harris County teenagers are accused of terrorizing an entire neighborhood. Officers say the teens targeted the homes and property of dozens of people.
Authorities have identified the accused 17- and 18-year-old teens as Sarah Alexis Villarreal, Joshua Pereson, Taylor Thornton and Alexandra Foster.
Brendon Hunyadi showed us pictures of his car after the windshield was impaled by a "for sale" sign.
"I wanted to cry, I love my car," he said.
Hunyadi's still stunned by the force it must have taken to cause that much damage.
"I didn't know what to do. My mouth just dropped and I was just shocked," he said.
His car is just one of dozens investigators say were targeted. The Harris County Precinct 4 Constable's Office says more than 50 cars, SUVs and homes were damaged.
Rick Horrock's SUV was vandalized, too. The back window was smashed, and he had to pay a $500 deductible to get it repaired.
"They need to repay the people for the damages I think," Horrock said.
Investigators say the rampage took place on just a single day -- November 19. It's not clear what they used to cause all the destruction. The teens were only arrested because a surveillance camera in one of the neighborhoods caught a picture of their vehicle. A detectives happened to spot it a few days later.
Investigators say the teens knew and didn't like some of the victims. Hunyadi says he played football last year at Klein Collins with the two boys.
"Yeah, that shocked me more. What did I do to deserve it? How would that make you feel if it was your car?" Hunyadi said.
All four of the teens are accused of felony criminal mischief.
