Report: teens vandalized new cars to 'release frustration'



This just caught our eye on the WPVI website:

LIMERICK TWP., Pa. - March 14, 2012 (WPVI) -- Two Montgomery County teenagers have been arrested for allegedly vandalizing new cars at a dealership, and police say the pair did it to release frustration.

Joshua Klinger, 19, of the 1600 block of Farmington Avenue in Pottstown and Dylan Richardson, 18, of the 900 block of Levengood Street in Pottstown, were arrested for the vandalism spree.

The incident happened on March 11th at the Fred Beans Chevrolet dealership in Limerick Township. Police say that 34 cars were damaged, with 74 tires punctured and 18 new cars scratched.

As police investigated, they found blood at the scene. During an interview with the suspects, police say Klinger stated he cut his finger while in the act of slicing a tire with a pocket knife.

Police said the pair went on the vandalism spree to  "release frustration."

The two also admitted to stealing tires and a motor in the same area during the past few months.

Police said the pair will be formally charged once a damage total has been determined.
