The Juneau Police Department says two teenagers are responsible for a string of vandalism incidents in the Lemon Creek Area.
One of the youths – a 17-year-old boy – was arrested 10 days ago on an unrelated warrant. Officers say he was spotted by members of the Juneau Citizen’s Patrol leaving the area of Dzantik’i Heeni Middle School shortly after it had been hit with a considerable amount of graffiti.
Police Spokeswoman Cindee Brown-Mills says a subsequent investigation revealed the 17-year-old and a 19-year-old male had tagged the word “toke” in several locations around Lemon Creek.
JPD has forwarded charges of criminal mischief against both to the Juneau District Attorney’s office. Neither suspect is being named at this time per department policy.
Brown-Mills says the vandalism resulted in approximately 1,120 dollars in damage to the school and nearby buildings.
The investigation is ongoing.
