An anonymous individual contacted the Dunwoody Police Department with information that led to arrests stemming from vandalism in Brook Run Park. Vandals broke into the park during the overnight hours of March 30-31and caused substantial damage to the community garden, including the destruction of food that was to be donated to a local food bank, according to police.
The Dunwoody Police have identified and charged five juveniles for the damage caused that night. The juveniles, four Dunwoody residents and one Roswell resident, were released to the custody of their parents.
“A group of teenagers decided to go to Brook Run Park after hours. One thing led to another and now all five of them are charged with criminal damage to property, a felony. I can’t stress enough about how important it is for teenagers to think about the consequences of their actions before they do something like this. Actions have consequences, and as you get older the consequences become more severe. This is a great opportunity for parents to engage their teenager in a conversation about decision making that may help them make better decisions in the future,” said Chief Billy Grogan. Those who have further information about this case are asked to contact Detective J. Maldonado at (678)382-6925.
