ROSWELL, N.M. (KRQE) - Toilet paper and teenagers. They're common ingredients in neighborhood pranks, but now a grown woman is in jail for allegedly trashing a Roswell neighborhood.
Roswell police say Andrea Morales, 31, drove 15 teenagers around north Roswell over the weekend so they could toilet paper people's houses.
"This was a very serious incident because there were so many kids involved," said Roswell Police Public Information Officer Sabrina Morales. "They were hanging outside onto the door and onto the vehicle. Many things could have happened to those kiddos."
Giji Frizell lives nearby and saw the aftermath.
"That's not right. They are up to no good; you know they are," said Frizell. "It might be toilet paper now, but no telling what else could happen."
According to the criminal complaint, Morales was driving at a moderate rate of speed with juveniles falling and jumping off her vehicle.
"Yes, the vehicle was in motion while the juveniles were hanging onto the side as well as riding in the vehicle," said Morales.
Investigators say they're not sure if she is related to any of the kids.
"Hopefully it will keep them off the streets for a little while especially if it's a mom and her kids or some other kids. That's not right," said Frizell.
Police say there were several homes toilet papered on at least three different blocks.
Three of the teens were arrested for resisting, evading and obstructing an officer.
Roswell police say they also found methamphetamine in Morales' car.
She was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and reckless driving.
