BB guns are causing problems in Nephi.

Chad Bowles, Nephi city police chief, said city ordinances make it illegal to shoot BB guns inside the city limits, yet in the past three weeks, street lights have been shot out, street signs have been damaged, power meters have been shot and protected birds have been killed with BB guns."We have received several complaints," said Bowles. "The vandalism is occurring in different parts of town," leading police to believe that several juveniles are involved.

"Parents should make their children aware of these problems so the city does not have to take further action," said Bowles.
