A 17-year-old and a 15-year-old round out the group of six deputies say have been terrorizing Delhi Township since April.

"Initially we had four suspects, and through interviews we indentified two more suspects," says Ingham County Sgt. Danielle Patrick.

The Ingham County Sheriff's Office is tying 19-year-old Aaron Younger, 17-year-old William Rosetos, and four other teenagers to thirty crimes-- mainly in Delhi Township, but some in Lansing, too.

Now, we're told the suspects-- some still too young to drive-- could be facing 41 criminal counts, felonies and misdemeanors both.

"They had absolutely no regard for anyone's property," Patrick says. "They told us they just did it for fun."

Patrick says the six are responsible for trashing a concession stand in Holt, a local church, a cemetery...

"They smashed our window, twice," says Evan Hope, Delhi Township Clerk. "Luckily they didn't do any damage to headstones."

And the neighborhood near Sycamore and Schoolcraft was targeted two nights in a row.

Pete Myers says they attempted to torch his motorhome.

"It kind of makes you think, 'What's the world coming to?'" he says.

Even though authorities say they've caught the culprits, they still advise neighbors to be on guard.

"We have another group, breaking into cars, breaking into homes and garages," Patrick says.

But she says this case should serve as a warning to anyone debating dabbling in crime.

"We are sending the message you will be caught and you will be prosecuted."

The two latest suspects have not been arrested yet.

The other four are free for the time being, including one on a tether and another free on bond.

The Sheriff's office is waiting for warrants to be authorized by the Prosecutor's office.
