PLAYA DEL REY (CBSLA) — Residents in several Westside neighborhoods may be breathing a sigh of relief now that five suspected vandals are behind bars.

BB guns have been used three weekends in a row with the suspects shooting out windows of cars in Westchester, Playa del Rey and Playa Vista.

The suspects were arrested Friday night just after 10 p.m. Investigators pulled over a dark-colored sedan, taking four people into custody.

Someone has been driving by, shooting a BB gun out the window of a car and targeting mostly parked vehicles.

More than a hundred vehicles have been vandalized.

    These kids definitely need some sort of corrective action…. with over 100 cars being hit and it costing easily over $350 per car [my Odyssey was hit so I believe my numbers are correct here] you have $35,000 in damages by “kids”….. this goes way beyond vandalism. I personally don’t care one bit about “punishment”….. simply that these kids need to be straightened out pronto.

    Perhaps this will also encourage the LAPD to beef up support in the Westchester and surrounding areas….. there definitely appears to be a clear increase in the number of B&E crimes in the region and no one seems to be taking it seriously.
