Three juveniles charged with spray-painting equipment in Belmont Village

BELMONT — Police have charged three juveniles males with one count each of vandalism for spray-painting on equipment owned by construction companies working in Belmont Village. He said the vandalism was reported on April 26 and likely occurred the night before.
Lt. Rich Mann said a large and a small paving roller, a skid steer, and a storage trailer were "tagged." He said the damage was estimated to be about $600 and did not interfere with the village reconstruction project.
Mann said former School Resource Officer Richy Bryant made a quick followup and learned who the boys were.
Mann said the three were referred to a juvenile justice program. He said there have been some instances where parents have been held financially responsible for the damage caused by their minor children, but only a judge can make that decision.
