Charges made in connection with vandalism

The Rugby Police Department’s investigation into a string of vandalism in the community earlier this month has led to the arrest of three Rugby juveniles who were later charged with criminal mischief, according to a police report.

Officer Justin Maus was assigned to the case and through his investigation arrests were made.

The names or addresses of the juveniles are being withheld and following their arrest they were released to their parents. They will be schedule to appear before the Juvenile Court later this month.

More arrests in connection with the vandalism could be made, according to the report. The incidents included deflating tires and damaging a gas cap from a parked vehicle as well as destroying two mailboxes and smashing pumpkins.

The department reminds the community there is a curfew for children under the age of 16, which is 10 p.m. nightly. If a child is out past the curfew time, they maybe stopped by law enforcement and possibly subjected to being referred to Juvenile Court. Responsible parents should know where their children are at all times and what they are doing, says police chief Luis Coca.
