    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.
     
    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 three different areas over the past two weeks.
     
    Becker was scheduled to be arraigned Saturday on charges including criminal mischief and endangering the welfare of a child.
     
    Information on an attorney for Becker was not immediately available.

    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."
