Two teens identified in NE Bend BB-gun damage to cars


Several airsoft, BB and pellet guns have been seized from two northeast Bend teens, 15- and 16-year-old boys believed to have used them to damage more than 10 cars around the area in recent weeks, officers said Thursday as they looked for other victims.

Police have received several reports in recent weeks regarding criminal mischief damaging car windows in the area of Northeast Purcell Boulevard, Neff Road, Full Moon Drive and nearby streets, Lt. Jason Maniscalco said.

Residents reported damage to windows both while they were driving and when they were parked on the street, generally in the early morning and late afternoon, Maniscalco said.

The Bend Police Intelligence-Led Policing Team investigated the incidents and determined the damage likely was caused by an airsoft or BB-style gun, the lieutenant said.

The investigation led team members to contact a home in the area of Neff Road and Lotus Drive, where the two boys were contacted and several airsoft, BB and pellet guns were found in their possession and seized.

Information regarding the pair’s involvement has been sent to the Deschutes County Juvenile Department for consideration of possible criminal mischief charges, Maniscalco said.

Officers also are aware of vehicles damaged by the pair that have not been reported to police. Maniscalco said police want to be notified by the public about any similar damage to their windows in the area.

Maniscalco wrote, ” We ask you contact the officers by calling the non-emergency number at 541-693-6911 or file a report using our online reporting system by using the following URL: . ”
