Authorities are investigating nearly 100 cases of windows that were destroyed, by BB guns and pellet guns.

The Sebring Police Department is investigating nearly 50 cases and the Highlands County Sheriff's Office is investigating 51 cases.

"I knew it was getting close to 100. I can't believe somebody is doing this," Jackie Losey said.

Losey said two car windows were damaged over the weekend.

"It's ridiculously infuriating. We live paycheck to paycheck and we just can't afford this kind of stuff," Losey said.

The police department has identified a vehicle of interest in their cases. They want to question the person or people, who were in a green pick up truck, that was captured on surveillance video. The sheriff's office hasn't released any information about a vehicle of interest in their cases. Both agencies are working together.

"You got hardworking people all over the county that have been getting screwed," Michael Morinico said.

According to authorities, someone or a group of people have fired bb guns and pellet guns at cars. They have gotten reports of businesses and some homes receiving damage too. This has been going on over a period of a month, but it jumped over the weekend.

"These are good hardworking people in Highlands County and there's just no room for this and I know these people doing it think it's all fun and games, but when they get taken to jail it's not going to be very funny any more," Scott Dressel, Highlands County Public Information Officer said.

If anyone has any information about these cases, they need to contact the Sebring Police Department, the Highlands County Sheriff's Office, or Heartland Crime Stoppers.
