By The Mercury

Riley County officers reported four more instances of criminal damage to property resulting from apparent BB gun pellets. Two juveniles were detained in relation to one of the incidents.

In that incident, which reportedly occurred overnight Friday, three vehicles were damaged at 822 Yuma Street. Lt. Josh Kyle said a driver’s side window of a 1992 Chevrolet 1500 pick-up truck and the windshields of a 1993 Pontiac Firebird and a 1998 Ford F-150 were broken.

Kyle said the investigation resulted in the detention of the two 17-year-old boys, both of Manhattan. The boys were released to their guardians.

•In another incident in the 400 block of South 5th Street, a 2001 White Ford Focus was reported to have BB gun damage and Kyle said the incident could be related to the Yuma Street case.

Kyle said damage was also reported to a Dodge Caravan parked at 201 Brookstone Drive on Friday, occurring between 8 and 9:20 p.m., and to another car parked at 2204 Lawrence Road.

The juveniles have not been named as suspects in those cases, which are still under investigation.
