ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) — Police have arrested four teenagers suspected of damaging property around Alamogordo over the last month.

The Alamogordo Daily News reports that 19-year-old Justin Broberg, 19-year-old Jesse Hardway, a 16-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl were arrested Saturday on 15 counts of criminal damage to property — but more charges may come.

Sgt. Roger Schoolcraft says the 19-year-olds face counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

The 16-year-old faces unlawful taking of a motor vehicle and DWI charges.

Schoolcraft says police received reports at 12:30 a.m. Saturday of a group smashing a car window and causing other damage.

Authorities say the suspects abandoned their vehicle but were found at various locations.

Broberg and Hardway are being held while the younger teens have been released to their parents.
