Teens Charged In Vandalism Spree

CLOTS NECK, N.J., Aug. 9 (UPI) — Four juveniles are accused of stretching plastic wrap across two roads in Colts Neck, N.J., which a motorcyclist hit, police say.

The youths, 13- and 14-year-olds from Colts Neck, who allegedly stretched industrial-grade plastic packaging wrap and duct tape across the roads, were arrested Saturday, the Asbury Park (N.J.) Press reported.

The motorcyclist that struck the plastic wrap was not injured in the ensuing crash.

Along with several counts of interference of transportation, the juveniles are charged with other acts of vandalism, theft and criminal mischief.

Between Monday and Friday last week, the suspects allegedly broke mailboxes, stole property, scattered trash and moved property around on various residences, Detective Sgt. Joseph Whitehead said. At least one car had been wrapped in plastic wrap and duct tape.

“In one case, a child’s swing-set seat was tampered with and the mother of the child was able to catch her daughter before she fell to the ground,” Whitehead said.
