LAUREL — One man and two boys have been arrested on suspicion of vandalizing nearly two dozen vehicles in Laurel within recent weeks, Laurel Police Det. Joel Sauter said Monday.

Connor Polkowske and the two boys, who were not named, are facing charges of felony criminal mischief for using a sling shot to shoot marbles into the windows of 22 vehicles in Laurel, according to Sauter.

The three admitted to vandalizing another 17 vehicles on Billings West End, Sauter said. Yellowstone County sheriff's deputies and Billings have been notified of this possible vandalism in their area, he said.

Laurel police received an anonymous tip Sept. 4 that led to the arrests, Sauter said.
