Woman accused of telling kids to shoot BB gun out of car

Saturday, April 20, 2013

Police say a Long Island woman has been arrested on charges she encouraged her teenagers to shoot the windows out of parked cars with a BB gun as she drove.

Forty-three-year-old Susan Becker of East Northport was arrested Friday in Hauppauge.

Suffolk County police say Becker bought a BB gun and gave it to her children. They say Becker's 15-year-old daughter, her 13-year-old son and another teenage boy fired the BB gun as she drove.

Police are investigating more than 60 reports of damage to car windows in the Islandia, Hauppauge and Commack areas over the past two weeks.

Becker was scheduled to be arraigned Saturday on charges including criminal mischief and endangering the welfare of a child.

Information on an attorney for Becker was not immediately available.
