Four Teens Charged
with Steele Creek Vandalism
(March 29, 2006)
Four teenagers have been arrested for a BB gun shooting spree that
went on for two months across Southwest Mecklenburg County. Windows
in as many as 200 vehicles had been shot out in several Steele Creek
neighborhoods stretching from Brown-Grier Road to Sledge Road.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Community Police Officer Travis Pardue said,
"What we got from them when asked why they were doing this, was
boredom, it was fun to do, and they hadn't gotten caught yet."
Officer Pardue said neighborhood watch groups helped generate a lot
of tips about the case.
