NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Six people are accused of spray painting houses and cars overnight in a neighborhood in north Nashville.

The vandalism occurred near Augusta and Dubois drives.

Someone called 911 around 12:30 p.m. saying the group was spray painting cars and homes in the area.

An officer responded and spotted the six suspects with their hands still covered with a variety of black, green and blue paint.

Police arrested Vonshae King, 26, and four juveniles, two boys, ages 16 and 14, and two girls, ages 14 and 13.

An officer recovered six cans of spray paint that the suspects had dropped as he approached them.

The colors matched those used to vandalize eight vehicles and a garage in the 3800 block of Dunbar Drive and on Revels Drive.

The juveniles admitted their involvement in the vandalism. They are charged in juvenile court with eight counts of felony vandalism and two counts of misdemeanor vandalism each. The teens also reported that King participated in the spray painting.

King is charged with eight counts of felony vandalism and two counts of misdemeanor vandalism. He is being held on $50,000 bond.

The 12-year-old child was charged with a curfew violation.

One of the victims, a former Metro teacher, says she wants to see the vandals clean it up.

"I would like to send a message to other teens that graffiti is not funny and that there are consequences. They should not get a pat on the wrist for this," said vandalism victim Marva Southall. "To tell you the truth, I could've shot them, then they would've been dead over something silly."

Police believe the group may also be responsible for previous vandalism in neighborhood.
