Superior Police have arrested two men suspected of vandalizing dozens of vehicles with a BB gun last year.

At least 70 vehicles had windows shot out in neigborhoods throughout the city on November 26.  After months of investigation, police say a detective obtained information last week that led to the arrests of two suspects, age 30 and 41.

The suspects have not been formally charged.  Police say prosecutors need extra time to prepare formal charges due to the complexity of a case involving dozens of victims and well over $10,000 in property damages.

The two men could each face 70 counts of criminal damage to property.  They are expected to make their initial appearances in court Thursday and Friday.
