Teens arrested for vandalizing more than 20 homes
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two teens have been arrested in Clark County, Indiana, after police say they spent three nights vandalizing 20-30 homes.
The spokesman for the Clark County Sheriff's Office, Scottie Maples, says two 15-year-old males were arrested Thursday night. Maples says that for the past three nights, the teens spray painted homes, cars and mailboxes in the Sunset Hills neighborhood in Memphis, Indiana, and homes on Ebenezer Church Road.
Maples says the vandalism varied. Some homes had a lot of spray paint damage, including giant stars. Others had less damage. Police say the teens admitted to cutting an above-ground pool, causing the water to leak.
The teens are charged with criminal mischief. Maples says it is not clear how many counts of criminal mischief the teens will face. The Clark County Sheriff's office says there may be more vandalism that homeowners noticed, but did not report. They ask anyone who may have been vandalized to call the Clark County Sheriff's Department.
Maples says one teen lived nearby, the other used to live in the Sunset Hills neighborhood. Police do not believe any other teens were involved.
The fact that the teens are juveniles means that they won't be identified by police.
