Teens accused of vandalizing several vehicles

Two teens were arrested Thursday on suspicion of using slingshots to damage several vehicles in Largo and Belleair last month. Maxwell Wesley Houser of Largo and Jeffrey Dylan Judy of Chuluota, both 19, used the slingshots to bombard the vehicles with marbles and pellets, police said. At least four vehicles sustained damage, including a Belleair garbage truck. Most of the incidents occurred on or near Ponce de Leon Boulevard. Judy and Houser, who face charges of criminal mischief, were linked to the incidents after the garbage truck was hit on Dec. 21. While riding in the truck, Belleair employees noticed that something hit the windshield, causing a spiral fracture several inches wide. Police were called after one of the workers spotted the youths in a nearby back yard. Police found that they bought the slingshots on Dec. 18 from a local Walmart. The youths told police they went through Belleair shooting marbles at various objects, including an SUV on Bayview Drive, according to arrest affidavits. They also shot at vehicles at the Belleair Towers Assisted Living Facility on Dec. 18, police said. Damages for the vehicles have been estimated at more than $2,700. Both teens have been released on their own recognizance.
