Pasco police nab 4 for using pellet gun to shoot out street lights, windows

November 15, 2013 

— Pasco police arrested three boys and an 18-year-old on suspicion of shooting out street lights and windows Thursday night near Memorial Park.

The suspects also may be responsible for a string of similar malicious mischief incidents throughout the week, police said.

Officers responded about 7:30 p.m. Thursday to reports of people shooting out street lights and windows in the 300 block of N. 14th inside the perimeter of the park.

At that same time, officers saw four males fleeing the park in different directions as they attempted to detain them.

Officers spent the next 30 minutes chasing them down in the surrounding neighborhoods.

Police reportedly recovered a CO2 air pistol, pellets and backpack left behind by the fleeing suspects in the park. Multiple street and park lights were damaged in and around the park from air gun pellets.

Three Pasco male juveniles were arrested for malicious mischief and Eduardo Rios, 18, of Pasco, was booked into the Franklin County Jail on suspicion of felony malicious mischief.

Throughout the week police have been taking reports from businesses and car owners about damage to windows throughout the city.
