Juveniles charged in burglary, vandalism cases
Police have charged three juveniles in two unrelated incidents of burglary and vandalism a week ago.
One involved a break-in at the New Albany Middle School and the other was a string of acts of glass-breaking from Church Street across town to the new dry-cleaning establishment on West Bankhead.
Chief Chris Robertson said the vandalism damage amounted to at least $5,000 with glass broken at Union Appliance, and in vehicles at Henson Distributing and utility vehicles at J. A. Byers Garage, among others. The damage apparently was done between 2 and 3 a.m. June 2.
The middle school burglary was earlier in the evening, about 11 p.m., the chief said. Suspects took some drinks and Jell-O but more costly was damage to the security system, door locks and cameras, at least $1,500.
One juvenile is charged in the vandalism case and two are charged in the burglary.
All are set for hearings in youth court which is part of the chancery court system and Robertson said probably the most the victims can do is try to get restitution for the losses.
