HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. – Prosecutors have arraigned a Long Island woman arrested on charges she encouraged her teenagers to shoot the windows out of parked cars with a BB gun as she drove.
Newsday reports Saturday bail was set at $30,000 for Susan Becker. On Friday, police charged the forty-three-year-old with 10 counts of criminal mischief and 11 counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
Police say Becker's 15-year-old daughter, her 13-year-old son and another teenage boy fired the BB gun as she drove.
Police are investigating more than 60 reports of damage to car windows in the Islandia, Hauppauge and Commack areas over the past two weeks.
Becker's next court date is Tuesday. The newspaper reports her legal aid lawyer says she has no criminal record.
