Last weekend, the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of vandalism of several buildings inside the Mile Branch settlement on the Washington Parish Fair grounds.
Several cabins were forcibly entered by someone kicking in the doors, items in some cabins were broken, some windows were broken and dry chemical fire extinguishers had been discharged inside and outside the buildings.
That same day, after being contacted by the Sheriff’s Office, parents brought their sons to the office and reported their involvement in the vandalism. Three of the young men confessed to the crimes while the fourth made no statement on the advice of his attorney.
All four young men were arrested and released to the custody of their parents who were issued juvenile arrest custodial agreements. The young men are scheduled to appear before a juvenile court judge.
