The Great Falls Police Department has three vandalism suspects in custody, and is asking that anyone who may have been victim to report the crime.

The GFPD said in a Facebook post that at about 11:15 p.m. on Tuesday, dispatchers received a call from a person who reported seeing three males loading rocks into the bed of a truck, and heard them talking about smashing windows.

As officers were headed to investigate, dispatchers began receiving calls from people reporting vehicle windows that had been smashed with rocks.

Within 30 minutes of the initial call, officers found the suspect truck - still occupied. The three suspects are two 17 years-old juveniles and one 19 year-old; their names have not been released at this time.

As of Wednesday morning, the GFPD has taken reports of at least 28 vehicles with damage to windows; reports are still coming in.
