Police had been investigating more than 60 incidents of car windows being shot out in Commack, Hauppauge, and Islandia over the past two weeks.
One woman told WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall she had not one, but two vehicles damaged.

A man told Miller a BB gunshot missed his white sport-utility vehicle in his driveway, and instead busted the window on his garage.
“Crazy mom,” he said. “What mom would instruct their children to do that? It’s crazy.”
Becker was arrested late Friday afternoon, and charged with multiple counts of criminal mischief and endangering the welfare of a child. She was arraigned in Suffolk County First District Court on Saturday, bail was set at $30,000.
