The vast majority of such crimes are just teens trying to get on the news. In fact I saw a news report on it (in SoCal long ago now) where they interviewed some teens that were caught doing various property damage crimes, and even a gang member who talked about "hits" that were also designed to get media attention, which they of course, gloated about and relished. It's attention seeking behavior.
