Juveniles Damage 31 Vehicles During Vandalism ‘Demolition Derby’

Some teenage boys cut a hole in the fence of the secured lot where vehicles were being stored, burglarized some of the cars and stole the keys to several others. They then intentionally crashed them into other vehicles in “what must have appeared to be a demolition derby,” the sheriff’s office said. A total of 31 cars and trucks were damaged during the vandalism and the damages are estimated at more than $225,000. Some of the vehicles were damaged beyond repair. A few of the juveniles returned to the auto body yard Friday “for a second heat,” but were detained by an employee. “We think that what happened is that they probably went back bragging to their friends, talking about what had happened, and then proceeded to try to come back and do the same thing again,” Findlay said. Get the full story here.
