SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Police have arrested two suspects for allegedly causing thousands of dollars in damage to cars in Sioux Falls.

Authorities say the suspects, 19 and 20 years old, broke several car mirrors Wednesday morning. Police say 16 owners have reported damage to their vehicles so far. The estimated damage amount totals more than $5,000.

One suspect allegedly used a wooden dowel to break the mirrors while the other drove.

Authorities say three teenage girls were in the back seat during the vandalism but were not charged.

KSFY-TV reports the two suspects face charges of intentional damage to property. Authorities say the amount of damage makes the crime a felony.
