'Bored' Teens Shot 275 Cars With BB Guns!

THESMOKINGGUN.COM - A pair of Florida teenagers arrested yesterday for damaging 275 vehicles in a BB gun shooting spree that caused in excess of $100,000 in damages told police that they carried out the vandalism because they were "bored."

Evan Salas, 19, and Brandon Smith, 18, were collared for a rampage through three cities in Pinellas County. The men--who shot up cars Friday night into Saturday morning--were each charged with felony criminal mischief, according to arrest affidavits.

When confronted by Pinellas County Sheriff's Office investigators, Salas and Smith reportedly copped to damaging cars and trucks in Belleair Bluffs, Largo, and Seminole. Asked why they would engage in such behavior, investigators noted, the pair explained they were "bored."

According to police, Smith and Salas were both armed with newly purchased CO2-powered BB guns and took turns "randomly shooting at vehicles" from Smith's car. Following his arrest, Smith admitted "shooting out windows of unoccupied vehicles," according to an arrest affidavit. Salas made a similar confession, admitting his involvement with "35% to 40% of the shooting."

Both men were booked Wednesday into the county jail.
