Two Palm Desert are under arrest for firing gunshots at a Palm Desert business.

24 year old Chance Sawyer (on left in photo above), and 33 year old Brett Wellard (on right in photo above), were high-tailing it out of Palm Desert at 5:18 Tuesday morning November 22nd 2022.

They got pulled over for speeding and deputies began probing to see if the duo was involved in a reported shooting incident.

Inside the car, deputies located a sling shot, a firearm, and metal pellets.

The Rancho Mirage Special Enforcement Team is investing 40 incidents in which windows of businesses have been broken by pellets.

The total cost of all that vandalism is more than 150-thousand dollars.

Sawyer and Wellard are jailed in Indio, facing several counts of vandalism and illegal possession of a firearm.
