Police: Teens used high-powered slingshots, paintballs, marbles to vandalize cars

Six Henderson teens have been arrested in a vandalism spree in which they employed high-powered slingshots, marbles and paintballs to damage 23 cars over two weekends.

Henderson Police spokesman Keith Paul said police caught the teens Friday after they stole marbles from the Wal-Mart Supercenter, 540 Marks St. The officers then located two high-powered slingshots and broken paintballs inside one of the teen’s car.

Brandon Sepe, 18, and Bryce Sepe, 18, were booked at the Henderson Detention Center on counts of misdemeanor and gross misdemeanor throwing substances at a vehicle.

Four 17-year-old boys were booked at the Clark County Juvenile Detention Center on the same counts; two of them also were booked on petty larceny counts.

Paul said there were 11 incidents of damage to vehicles from paintballs and marbles reported on Oct. 26 and 27. Those incidents took place near Boulder Highway and Sunset Road. There were 12 more similar incidents reported the following weekend near Stephanie Street and Warm Springs Road.

Pauls said the damage estimates ranged from $150 to $1,500.

Most of the teens admitted to the vandalism, Paul said.

A 16-year-old girl also was booked at the juvenile detention center on conspiracy to commit petty larceny.

Bryce Sepe remained jailed Tuesday morning with bond set at $11,644; Brandon Sepe remained in jail Tuesday with a bond of $20,740.

  1. don't these kids have nothing better to do? Go to the library! oh, wait - it's closed.

  2. These teens need to be working.

  3. tom_duh,

    They would only burn the books and have their way with the librarians.

  4. After spending a few month in jail and paying off the fines and damages, they need to have their licenses revoked until they turn 21. We keep slapping these young adults on the wrists when they do bad things and wonder why it keeps happening. If my kid did that he would wish he was never born. Too many parents today simply dismiss whatever their kids do thereby rewarding bad behavior
