SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Four suspects face felony vandalism charges after damaging several businesses, houses, vehicles and a church over two weekends.

Islands Precinct officers arrested the four suspects early Monday morning with the help of Thunderbolt Police officers.

Lavontay Frank Gatson, 20, April Ann Mizer, 18, Renee Kelsey Raker, 17, and William Cody Smith, 21, are all charged with two counts of criminal damage to property and nine counts of criminal trespass.

Mizer and Smith were also charged with vandalism to a place of worship.

All four admitted to shooting marbles at multiple vehicles and businesses, causing the glass and windows to shatter. They also spray painted multiple vehicles and the church on Lehigh Avenue.

Metro Police identified dozens of cars and buildings with damage from marbles fired from a paintball gun, and the damage was similar to reports from Jan. 29 and 30 when numerous vandalism incidents were reported.

Metro Police continue to receive reports of damage, and Islands and Southside Precint detectives continue to investigate.
