More Charges Filed in Louisiana Vehicle Vandalism Case

January 2, 2014

Authorities say two men suspected of shooting out windows in more than 150 vehicles on Christmas Eve have been rebooked with more counts of criminal damage to property.

Sheriff’s spokesman Col. John Fortunato tells The New Orleans Advocate that 19-year-old Christopher Flanagan and 20-year-old Decotah Hamilton now face 124 counts each. They were originally booked with 42 counts each of misdemeanor and felony criminal damage, Fortunato says.

The men could face more charges, Fortunato says.

Investigators say they recovered a BB pistol believed used in the shootings.

The two were booked at the Jefferson Parish jail.

It was not immediately clear whether either suspect has an attorney.
