PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say a Phoenix man has been accused in series of incidents where a BB gun was used to damage windows and parked vehicles in various locations around the city.

Phoenix police say 18-year-old Edwin Pacheco was arrested Saturday and booked into jail on suspicion of five counts of criminal damage.

Pacheco didn’t have a lawyer at his initial court appearance Monday.

Police say as many as 78 of the criminal damage incidents occurred in the Black Mountain and Desert Horizon precincts since Feb. 17.

Witness statements and evidence led investigators to Pacheco’s vehicle.

Police say he was arrested after a traffic stop and evidence was found including a BB gun.

They say other suspects involved in the incidents have yet to be identified.
