Two teens in Red Wing, Minnesota, are accused of causing thousands of dollars in damage after shooting at multiple vehicles with a BB gun.

The two 18-year-old Red Wing men are now charged with first-degree damage to property and carrying a BB gun in a public place.

Police say they received multiple complaints of damage to vehicles between the night of Oct. 20 and Oct. 22. Officers estimate the men caused about $45,000 in damage, according to a news release. Criminal charges list 22 vehicles as damaged from BB gun. Officers were able to connect the incidents to a 1994 Cadillac Deville, which ultimately led them to the suspects.

Both teens were booked into the Goodhue County Jail.
