Three teenage boys have been charged with vandalism, after getting caught in the alleged act at Melvin Park in the Mendenhall Valley.
According to Juneau Police, on December 4th a woman witnessed the boys spray painting some bleachers at the park and setting fire to the paint.
After the woman called to report the incident, Capital City Fire and Rescue responded to the park and located the three boys. Police were able to question them and determine that they were responsible for the vandalism.
According to a JPD release, the boys – age 12, 13 and 15 – are each charged with 4th degree criminal negligent burning.
Damage to the bleachers is estimated at 400 dollars.
