FRONT ROYAL -- Police have discovered additional incidents of vandalism to the 40 that two teenagers confessed to on Friday.
The two 17-year-olds were previously interviewed regarding the 40 instances of using slingshots to shoot out windows in vehicles, homes and businesses.
The number of incidents has now been put at 60, and each juvenile faces one count for each incident, according to a Front Royal Police Department news release.
Police responded to a call about shots being fired into a home in the 100 block of Washington Street late Thursday, the release says.
Police received several calls the same night with similar complaints involving building and vehicle windows. The investigation continued into the early morning on Friday and encompassed the entire southern end of town.
The damage, police found, had come from a glass marble type of object similar that used in a slingshot.
Detectives were able to identify two potential suspects through observation of several security systems in the area.
At about 2 a.m. on Friday, detectives interviewed one of the teenagers and obtained a full, voluntary confession.
At around 2:45 p.m., police interviewed the second teenager at the police department and obtained a confession.
Police are still investigating the incident and taking vandalism complaints.
