SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. -

Three teens -- an 18-year-old, 17-year-old, and 16-year-old -- have been arrested for criminal damage in a case involving more than 100 vehicles in Sierra Vista since August.

Zachary Taylor Carter Bennett, 17, Christian Kyle Bense, 18, and Jacob Evan Hocker, 16, all of Sierra Vista, are each facing 10 counts of criminal damage. Bennett and Hocker have an additional charge of arson against them. They are being charged as adults.

A fourth suspect, a 16-year-old from Hereford, was referred to juvenile court for 2 counts of criminal damage and 1 count of arson.

Since mid-August, 121 vehicles in Sierra Vista were damaged by rocks and other objects. Some tires were slashed, some mirrors broken. The vehicles were parked in streets or driveways.

After receiving a tip from the public, detectives conducted surveillance on Bennett's residence. Later, evidence was gathered to implicate Bennett, Bense, and Hocker in the crimes.

Each of them allegedly admitted to participating in the crimes. They remain jailed in the Cochise County Jail.
