sounds like an attack to do you have a firewall and have you blocked ICMP?

in fact ignore that, these are NON routable addresses so they HAVE to be on your network do this instead...............

get a laptop plugged in on the same network, and get on the same network number as the offenders, now ping those IP addresses, there now in your ARP cache :)

do a arp-a command and get the MAC addresses for them

Now track those MAC addresses through your switches MAC address tables and sooner or later you can follow them from switch to switch till the last switch will tall you which port its on, go to the switch and see whats patched into it - and youve got one of the offenders, time for some violence :)
