Surveillance video helped nab three suspected vandals who went on an Easter crime spree in Carteret County.

Deputies say all over the county residents woke up Sunday and Monday to find someone had shot out their vehicle windows. They found golf balls and other metal balls inside.

Two teens and a 41-year-old woman are now in jail. William Smith, Bonnie Moran and Matthew Chisenhall are charged in excess of 20 counts of injury to property.

Deputies say the trio drive around the county, shooting metal balls and golf balls with sling shots. Most of the victims were chosen at random.

The spree occurred between during the overnight hours of Easter Sunday and Monday as the trio drove through neighborhoods in Brandywine, Newport, Mill Creek, Sea Gate, and Morehead City.

Authorities believe additional charges are possible as additional victims discover their damage.
