17-year-olds ace elony charges in vandalism spree
wo victims report cars being hit on drivers side while being driven
By Roger BianchiniWarren County ReportWhile the notion o competitive vandalism may have seemed like agood idea to relieve teenage angstor boredom at the time, it appearstwo o this community’s youth arending out the hard way – poten-tial restitution o over $0,000 androm one to 10 years o possibleincarceration per incident – it isNO.In an Oct. 17 press release theFront Royal Police announced theconessions and arrests o two17-year-old juvenile suspects ina string o nearly 70 vandalismsthroughout central and south-sideFront Royal the evening o Oct. 13.Te vandalisms targeted windowso vehicles, including this report-er’s, and buildings with marblesred rom what police say was aslingshot. While the youths wereseen eeing at least one incidenton oot, police say they movedaround town in a vehicle.Among the buildings hit werethe Wendy’s ast ood restauranton North Commerce Avenue andthe Front Royal Visitor’s Center onEast Main Street. wo residencesin the Marlow Heights area werealso targeted along with numerous vehicles in Viscose City and alongCherrydale Avenue, Keroot Driveand Virginia Avenue, as well as theLake View Subdivision o West-minster Drive.Te most serious allegations arethat two vehicles were hit whilebeing driven, both on the driver’sside within inches o those drivers’heads.According to FRPD Chie Rich-ard Furr, the juveniles ace elony charges in incidents where oc-cupied buildings or vehicles werered into. Te initial report o “shots red into a residence” cameat 6:30 PM rom the 100 block o Washington Street, according totown police.wo victims told this reportertheir cars were hit while they weredriving.One victim said he was drivingsouthbound on South CommerceAve. near the Hess gas stationabout 7 PM when his driver’s siderear window was blown out. Hisinitial reaction was that someonehad red a gun at him. He said hesaw two juveniles running east upa side street by the gas station im-mediately ater the incident. Helater recovered a marble rom theback o his Jeep Cherokee.“My window was part way down.I my car had been a oot or twourther back it could have hit mein the head,” he told us.Te husband o the couple whowere the second moving vehicle victims told us he and his wiehad just let Element restauranton North Royal Avenue between 7PM and 8 PM. Tey were travelingsouthbound on North Royal whena projectile struck.“My wie was driving and I wasin the passenger seat when weheard a noise and the driver’s siderear window cracked but didn’t allout. We kept going and when wegot home discovered that the smallback window on the passenger sidewas cracked too. We called thepolice and met them back at Ele-ment.”Te husband said the FRPD o-cer took photos o their vehicleand ound a single marble in theback o their 005 Volkswagen Jet-ta. Te rst impact hit the driver’sside rear window near the doorpost just inches rom his wie’shead, then hit the passenger-sideback panel window and stayed inthe car, he told us.“From the damage it appeared tobe ve, six inches tops rom hittingher in the head. I think rom theangle between where the marblehit both windows you could easily make a case they were shooting atmy wie and missed her,” he said.He said his wie broke downemotionally when they got home

and asked i he was taking the in-cident seriously enough. I told her,“Yes, I could be at the morgue rightnow or you could be a vegetable– that’s pretty serious.”Warren County Common-wealth’s Attorney Brian Maddensaid in the case o occupied build-ings or vehicles being red into,i malice is proven, the charge israised to a Class IV elony with apotential ne o up to $100,000and a sentence o  to 10 years. As juveniles, that incarceration wouldbe in a juvenile detention acility –at least until the suspects reach theage o 1. Madden observed thatdependent on the nature o theincident those upper punishmentranges generally reect sentencesgiven to adults.Without malice proven the ringinto occupied structures and ve-hicles are Class VI elonies, as are vandalism charges with damagesover $1000. Te vandalisms result-ing in less than $1000 in damagesare Class I misdemeanors.Te misdemeanor charges eachcarry potential punishments o upto a $,500 ne and 1 months o incarceration. Te Class VI elony charges carry the same potentialne and rom one to ve years o incarceration, again in a juvenilecorrectional acility until the ageo 1.According to the Oct. 17 policepress release “Each juvenile acesone count each per incident o van-dalism.” As o Oct. 1st the num-ber o related incident reports hadreached “the upper 60s” accordingto lead FRPD Investigator JasonRyman. As o that date no new re-ports had been received or severaldays and Ryman said he hoped all victims had been accounted or.Ryman told us the two juvenilesuspects who conessed to the in-cidents had no history o previoustrouble with the law – “Tey werenot on our radar at all,” Ryman saido the two youths. He added thatthe parents o both boys had beentotally cooperative with authori-ties.Fortunately or those parents,according to the Commonwealth’sAttorney state law no longer holdsthem nancially liable or crimescommitted by their children. Ry-man agreed with my estimate,based in part on my $10 repairbill rom AGE o Middletown orreplacement o a back panel win-dow or a 000 Jeep Cherokee, thatthe total restitution amount couldend up being somewhere between$0,000 and $30,000. Te juvenileswill become liable or that restitu-tion when they reach their 18thbirthdays.
Conessions
Ater the initial report o theWashington Street incident theFRPD press release stated, “Fromthat point, police responded tonumerous similar calls involvingbuildings and vehicles through-out the night. Additional patrolpersonnel as well as criminal de-tectives were called in due to theextent o the situation. Te dam-age was ound to have come rom aglass marble type o object similarto what is used with a slingshot.“Detectives were able to identiy two potential suspects throughobservation o several security sys-tems in the aected area,” the Oct.17 FRPD press release stated.According to inormation re-ceived by this paper, one piece o evidence used to ID the suspectswas security video rom a local re-tailer showing the suspects eitherbuying or stealing marbles earlierthat day. Lead Investigator Rymandeclined to comment on the spe-cics o evidence assembled in thecase.“At approximately 1 AM (0100hours) on Oct. 14, a 17-year-old juvenile was interviewed at theirresidence where a ull voluntary conession was obtained,” the po-lice press release stated. “Investiga-tion continued through the nightand into the ollowing day. At ap-proximately :45 PM (1445 hours)on Oct. 14, another 17-year-old juvenile was interviewed at the po-lice department where another ullconession was obtained.Te investigation continues andno charges had yet been led ora hearing date set in the cases by press time.
Public safety
One targeted car on 300 block of Virginia Avenuewas hit twice. Some victims are asking if there couldhave been a third party involved allowing two teensto re their slingshots from a moving vehicle at the
same time?
“From the damage it appeared to be ve, six inches tops rom hitting her in the head. I think romthe angle between where the marble hit both windows you could easily make a case they wereshooting at my wie and missed her.” – a second moving vehicle victim
