Two juveniles have been detained and a 17-year-old arrested after reports of property destruction Tuesday night in Jefferson City.

Jefferson City Police Department officers responded to several calls for property destruction at approximately 6 p.m. Tuesday, according to a JCPD news release.

The calls reported broken windows on vehicles and businesses near the 1800 block of Missouri Boulevard and 800 block of Southwest Boulevard.

The initial investigation led officers to determine a "small projectile" likely caused the damage.

Officers identified three suspects.

Dorian Lee, 17, was taken to the Cole County Jail and held for charges of two counts of first-degree property destruction and one second-degree count of property destruction. Lee is being held on pre-set bonds of $5,000 for each first-degree count and $500 for the second-degree charge.

A 15-year-old and 14-year-old were taken to the Prenger Family Center for detention. The names of the juveniles will not be released, JCPD Lt. David Williams said. The Police Department news release identifies the two juveniles as male.

Officers recovered two CO-2-style BB guns, CO-2 cartridges and BBs as evidence from the suspects.
