JPD: Police nab trio of teen vandals

Police announced Friday three teenage boys, ages 12, 12 and 15, were caught spray-painting graffiti on the concession stand at Adair-Kennedy Memorial Park and urinating on the building.

Juneau Police Department said in a release they received a report of vandalism to the concession stand last on Jan. 17. Police found profanity spray-painted on the walls and urine on the building, as well as additional profanity spray-painted on the back of Floyd Dryden Middle School. Property damage was estimated at $500, the release said.

Police reviewed security camera footage at the park and found the vandalism occurred at about 7 p.m. on Jan. 13. An investigation found the culprits were two 12-year-old boys and that a 15-year-old had urinated on the building, the release said.

“By using the footage, officers were able to determine the names of the teenagers involved and spoke with all parties,” the release states.

Police said the case is being handled through civil means at the request of the City and Borough of Juneau Parks & Recreation staff.
