BREAKING: Arrests Made in Bus Shelter Vandalism
Two teens have been arrested after more than two dozen bus shelters were damaged in Scarborough and Durham Region early Tuesday morning.
NewsTalk 1010 has learned that the two young men were contacted by police at their homes in Pickering on Wednesday afternoon by Durham Police and later turned themselves in.
The two 17-year-olds who cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, are said to be linked to numerous cases of vandalism, not just the bus shelters that were smashed Monday night into Tuesday morning. Durham Police say the boys are facing 47 charges in that jurisdiction alone, after being wanted in connection with smashing car windows and bus shelters in August.
They are now facing more than 60 charges in total.
More than 30 bus shelters were vandalized in Scarborough, Pickering and Ajax. 19 of them were damaged in Scarborough.
Damage is said to be more than $10, 000.
