(La Porte, IN) - Two juveniles have been arrested in connection with vandalism in La Porte, reported earlier this week on HometownNewsNow.com (click here). La Porte Police Chief, Paul Brettin, said the arrests were made yesterday and confessions were obtained from both suspects.
He said the juveniles are connected to the scratching of a motor vehicle in the area of Scott and Rumley Streets. There’s been many reports of vandalism in that area for months with an uptick in recent weeks. Brettin says he’s not sure yet how much of the vandalism the two suspects were responsible for but credited images from video cameras at homes for the arrests.
Brettin said the vandalism included damage to street signs and other things like vehicles hit with eggs. He indicates more arrests are a possibility.
