Police said Monday they've solved a rash of air gun attacks that have left dozens of car windows broken in Cary.

In each case, police say it appears an air/BB type gun was used. In some cases, eggs were also thrown on the vehicles, causing further damage. Nothing was taken from the cars, and all of the incidents occurred inside the loop around Cary made by Maynard Road, or just outside of it.

Police said they arrested four teens in the vandalism after a traffic stop December 13.

Jose Luis Corrales Romero, 17, of Stone Court; Nelson Vladimir Hernandez-Tobar, 18, of Hickory Street; Angel Ubano Juarez, 17, of York Street; and Christian Francisco Tobar-Vasquez, 16, of Hickory Street; are all charged with misdemeanor injury to real property and injury to personal property.

Police said help from the public helped them make the arrests.

"We want to thank the outpouring of tips from community watch groups and citizens. It is this partnership that enables us to keep Cary one of the safest places in the country," said Capt. Don Hamilton, Criminal Investigations Unit for the Town of Cary Police Department.
