Teens accused of vandalism
Shenandoah County authorities arrested two boys Thursday accused of shooting BBs at buildings and vehicles in the region. Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to a report of vandalism at Valley Baptist Church near Edinburg. They arrived to find two vehicles with their windows shot out. Authorities also determined that similar incidents had occurred in the White Hall area in Frederick County, the Va. 37 bypass near Winchester and Interstate 81 at Middletown in which vehicle windows were shot out.
Two suspects, 16 and 17-years-old, from the Hedgesville, West Virginia, were identified. Investigators also recovered two BB guns from a dumpster at the Sheetz in Mount Jackson. Charges in Shenandoah County are pending and the Sheriff’s Office will seek juvenile petitions for the damage to the properties.
Shenandoah County authorities are working with other agencies, including the Virginia State Police and the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office because the other incidents that occurred in the I-81 corridor and other areas in Frederick County were reported on the same day.
The Sheriff’s Office asks anyone with information regarding the case to contact case agent Deputy Trevor Rick at 540-459-6100.
