The Highlands County Sheriff's Office and Sebring Police department worked together to arrest two teenagers who went on a month long spree and shot over 100 car windows and nine businesses with BB guns.

Logan Patrick Lashley and his 17-year-old cousin, whose name will be withheld, were arrested Friday and charged with six counts of criminal mischief, nine counts of shooting into a building and one count of misdemeanor criminal mischief. 

In total, the pair damaged 112 vehicles and nine businesses resulting in around $47,000 in repairs, detectives say. 

The teenagers confessed early May. In order to make sure every victim was accounted for, the number of cases they were charged with took many weeks to process.



“This was a huge undertaking and it was solved by solid police work,” Sheriff Paul Blackman said. “There were many deputies, police officers, and detectives involved in these cases from the start, and it took more than 300 hours between the two agencies from the beginning of the investigation to the end. HCSO Det. Du’Wayne Kelly and Sebring Police Det. Tim Ritenour are to be commended for taking the lead roles and putting an end to this crime spree so quickly.”

Detectives used camera footage from multiple locations and were able to identify a vehicle. Eventually, they were able to determine the vehicle was registered to Logan Lashley. 




Officials located both teenagers and interviewed the unnamed suspect who told detectives they did not realize how much damage was done and that it was just "juvenile stupidity."

The bond for each suspect was set at $51,250.
