Yesterday, Suffolk County Police arrested a woman who drove with her 13-year-old son, 15-year-old daughter, and another 15-year-old male in her car and encouraged them to shoot out windows of parked cars with a BB gun that she purchased for them.
The Fourth Precinct Crime Section, with assistance from detectives from the Fourth Squad, were investigating more than 60 incidents of criminal mischief to car windows in the Islandia, Hauppauge, and Commack areas over the past two weeks. An investigation revealed Susan Becker, age 43, of 172 Cedrus Ave., East Northport, drove the three youths and encouraged them to shoot out the windows.
Becker was arrested at the 4th Precinct in Hauppauge at 5:13 p.m. and charged with 10 counts Criminal Mischief 4th Degree, Criminal Mischief 3rd Degree, and 11 counts Endangering the Welfare of a Child.
Becker is scheduled to be arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on April 20.
A criminal charge is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
