Vehicle Vandals Could Face Felony Charges

Three suspects face felony charges, after Lubbock Police catch them shooting out car windows early Thursday morning.  

Investigators credit an alert sergeant for the captures of 20-year-old Travis Bell, 20-year-old Pedro Lara and 21-year-old Rene Villalva.  On Thursday afternoon, all three men were charged with criminal mischief, which is a misdemeanor, but authorities say the amount of damage could lead to a state jail felony.

Lubbock Police tell NewsChannel 11 that Sergeant Jeff Davis heard the suspects shooting out windows near 73rd and Chicago. He followed their vehicle to 82nd and Vicksburg, where he pulled them over and discovered a BB Gun around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday.  

Investigators suspect the trio could be connected to at least 30 shot out windows in the city, and possibly more in the county and Wolfforth.  If damage estimates reach more than $1,500, Bell, Lara, and Villalva could face time in a state jail.  "We feel very certain that once the value of all the damage together is added up it will most certainly be a felony grade charge," Lubbock Police Captain Greg Stevens said. 

Right now, authorities say there's no indication these three suspects are connected to the, roughly 130 windows reported shot out Tuesday night. If you have any information that can help police solve those vandalism cases, call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
