Teens Charged in Pittsville Vandalism Spree

Posted:

PITTSVILLE, Md.- Maryland State Police say they have arrested two teenage boys for going on an early Friday vandalism spree in which they allegedly damaged mailboxes, trash cans and lawn ornaments in the Pittsville area of Wicomico County.

Police said that shortly before 1 a.m., troopers responded to a series of vandalism incidents at homes on the 30000 block of Old Ocean City Road in the vicinity of Sixty Foot Road.

Troopers said that with the assistance of the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office- two boys, ages 13 and 14 respectively- were detained in the area of a car dealership in Pittsville. Police said a further investigation revealed that the two teens were responsible for damaging more than 17 mailboxes, trash cans and lawn ornaments. The estimated damage was approximately just under $1,000, according to police.

The teens were arrested and charged with malicious destruction of property. After troopers notified the Maryland Department of Juvenile Justice about the incident, the teens were released to the custody of their parents pending a court hearing.

Police said that due to the late hour of the incident there are possibly more victims. The Salisbury Barrack is asking any possible victim on Old Ocean City Road in Pittsville to contact the barrack at (410) 749-3101 and speak with Trooper Riggs, who is the investigator.
