Authorities credit good detective work, extensive surveillance video and clumsy criminals for the apprehension of two teenagers who they believe donned Kiss masks and caused more than $40,000 in damage to cars in the lot of the SB Maaco Auto Body Shop in Saddle Brook.
They smashed and spray-painted more than two dozen vehicles for no apparent, making music of a different kind with metal pipes and a shovel. The worst damage was to a 2010 S-Class Mercedes Benz.
One of the suspects had a cast on his arm, while another was wearing a New York Rangers jersey. They are the two being questioned by police, after they removed their masks at a nearby train station, unaware that cameras were rolling.
Owner Walter Carol says his motion-detecting cameras are always on after a similar incident in October.
The two other suspects remain on the loose.
