Police say a Long Island woman has been arrested on charges she encouraged her teenagers to shoot the windows out of parked cars with a BB gun as she drove.
 
Susan Becker, 43, of East Northport was arrested Friday in Hauppauge.
 
Suffolk County police say Becker bought a BB gun and gave it to her children. They say Becker's 15-year-old daughter, her 13-year-old son and another teenage boy fired the BB gun as she drove.
 
Police are investigating more than 60 reports of damage to car windows in the Islandia, Hauppauge and Commack areas over the past two weeks.
 
Becker was arraigned Saturday on charges including criminal mischief and endangering the welfare of a child.
 
Newsday reports her bail was set at $30,000. Becker's next court date is Tuesday. The newspaper reports her Legal Aid lawyer says she has no criminal record.

Becker's neighbor, Wendy Morelli, said she was shocked to learn of the charges and described Morelli as a "great mom" and a "great neighbor."

"She's always there to help everybody," Morelli said of Becker. "This doesn't seem real. She's just such a good person."
