March 11, 2009

Police in West Haven, Connecticut say five Milford teenagers have been arrested after a weekend vandalism spree in which 65 vehicles were damaged.

Police say the teens drove around West Haven’s West Shore area late Saturday and early Sunday throwing potato-size rocks at parked cars.

The first reports came in to police early Saturday of several vehicles being vandalized and a white car was involved.

An officer of patrol stopped a white 1991 Buick that matched the description of the vehicle. Five teenagers were in the car and officers say they noticed several rocks inside the vehicle.

The five teenagers are charged with dozens of counts of second-degree criminal mischief and conspiracy to commit second-degree criminal mischief.
