Vandals used a pellet gun to break several windows in businesses along State Street in Orem Friday night.

"We're taking this very seriously," said Orem police Sgt. Bill Young. "We're following leads, interviewing suspects and placing people strategically to catch them. We're talking about thousands of dollars in damage here."The vandals cruised the strip between 400 South and 900 North firing pellets into windows about 9:30 p.m., Young said. A business owner called police after a pellet penetrated his window.

The vandals may have shot out windows in cars and businesses during another shooting spree Thursday night, Young said. The gunmen could face felony charges.
