LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - More than two-dozen cars were damaged after police say five kids were tossing rocks from a freeway overpass in the northwest Valley.

The rock-throwing incidents happened late last month, but the arrests of the five kids, all ages 10-14, weren't made until this week.

According to NHP, there were two incidents of rock throwing back on April 24th, and another incident on April 30th.

Using testimony from witnesses, police were able to locate the juveniles they felt were responsible. All the kids lived near Torrey Pines and U.S. 95. NHP said the rocks had been thrown from the Torrey Pines overpass.

None of the drivers in the cars that were hit suffered serious injuries. The same can't be said for their cars.

The kids are currently in the Clark County Juvenile Detention Facility.

NHP says it will be the parents that will be on the hook for the damage their kids caused.
