Harker Heights police have arrested two men who may be responsible for shooting more than 120 windows in the Killeen area with a pellet gun.
The Harker Heights Police Department filed felony charges against Sean Thomas Lee, 28, and Timothy Ray Lundy, 21. Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke arraigned Lee and Lundy Tuesday, setting their bail at $50,000 each.
Separate shooting sprees occurred Dec. 6 in Copperas Cove, Dec. 10 in Killeen, Saturday in Killeen and Sunday in Harker Heights. In total, 125 reports of windows being shot out were filed between Dec. 6 and Monday.
Lee and Lundy were charged with criminal mischief, more than $1,500 but less than $20,000, in connection with windows damaged in Harker Heights. The charge carries a penalty of up to two years in prison.
HHPD Chief Mike Gentry said the two may be responsible for 45 incidents of criminal mischief in Harker Heights, 37 of which were reported Sunday night and Monday morning.
Police in Killeen and Copperas Cove continue to work with HHPD to see if there is any connection between complaints in those cities.
"We have been in contact with KPD and HHPD, but neither have led to any major leads for us," said Sgt. Kevin Keller, Copperas Cove police spokesman.
Damage in Harker Heights is estimated at more than $35,000, Gentry said. In Cove, damage topped out above $28,000. The amount of damage in Killeen, where more than 60 incidents were reported, was not available, Killeen police spokeswoman Carroll Smith said.
Heights police arrested Lee and Lundy Sunday night after receiving numerous reports of broken windows throughout Harker Heights.
An officer responded to an area near East Farm-to-Market 2410, when he spotted a suspicious vehicle parked on Boxwood Drive, according to an arrest report.
The officer saw a man walking around the red Ford Mustang with a flashlight before getting back in the car.
After driving a short distance, the car stopped again. Two occupants got out of the car and looked at its tires, the affidavit states.
The officer made contact with the pair of men later identified as Lee and Lundy. The officer asked if any weapons were inside the car. Lundy told the officer yes and showed him a pellet gun.
Lundy later admitted to shooting out the windows of several businesses and cars. Lee also admitted to participating, stating the two would take turns shooting windows, the affidavit states.
Lundy and Lee were in custody at Bell County Jail Tuesday night.
