DENISON, TX-- Jake McAtee and 74 other Denison residents, had a rude awakening Tuesday morning.

"My dad woke me up and asked if my window was broken when I came home and I said no. So that freaked me out, so I went out and there was no window there," McAtee explained.

The morning of July 31st, Denison Police were called to dozens of homes to report car damages.

"We found that there were some vehicles that had windows, wind shields broke, as well as outside mirrors broken and vehicle damage. During the investigation, we uncovered numerous vehicles in different parts of town," said, Lt. Mike Eppler.

While investigating, officers found four teenagers and a baseball bat in a vehicle.

After further questioning the teens, aged 13 to 17,admitted to hitting parked cars.

They've been taken to the Grayson County Juvenile Detention Center, but Eppler says there could be up to 10 arrests for Felony Criminal Mischief.

"We are still talking to any potential victims, any witnesses, of course suspects, possible suspects, we've made four arrest, and there may be more arrest forth coming. Everything is still under investigation at this point. And we would like to ask anyone that did find damage to their vehicle to go ahead and report it."

Police don't believe anything was stolen out of the cars with their windows broken. McAtee said it could have been worse.

"No its not fun, it's kind of just annoying really. Like it wasn't even, they hasn't stolen anything, it just kind of like was annoying."

Anyone with information on these crimes or others is asked to contact the Denison Police Department at 903-465-2422.
