A Long Island, New York, woman bought a BB gun, then drove her two children and another boy around and had them shoot at parked cars, police said.


Susan Becker, 43, of East Northport was arrested Friday, NBCNewYork.com reported.

Police said there were more than 60 reports of damage to car windows in the Islandia, Hauppage and Commack areas over the past two weeks, Newsday reported.

Police said Becker’s 13-year-old son and 15-year-old daughter and another 15-year-old boy were involved.


Becker was facing several charges, including endangering the welfare of a child, NBCNewYork.com reported.

News of her arrest came as a shock to one neighbor.

“Susan is a great mom, she’s a great neighbor, she’s always there to help everybody,” neighbor Susan Morelli told NBC 4 New York. “A very all-American typical mom. I just can’t say enough nice things about her because she’s just such a nice person.”

Morell said there must be some explanation “that we don’t know about. … She just wouldn’t do something like that.”
