Vandalism Suspects Reportedly Caught

Police have told victims that two teenagers are suspected of causing damage throughout Upper St. Clair last summer.

Upper St. Clair police have contacted multiple victims to report that they've arrested two teenagers accused of vandalizing a variety of residences and institutions last summer.

However, police have not filed any charges against the teenagers.

One victim said she was told the suspects would be paying her for her damaged mailbox. 

Upper St. Clair police have not returned Patch's phone calls.

Two teenagers arrested but no charges filed? Does that seem strange?

Bob, you must remember that this is Upper St. Clair.

This is Uppity St Clair, Mommy and Daddy will pay for the damages. The wonderful children might be grounded from going to seven springs for the weekend, and they might have to clean the stalls where the polo ponies are kept!! Seriously, no wonder the "youth" are so wonderful-they never have to take responsibility for their actions. When they were bashing mailboxes I wonder if they were driving the Benz or the Beemer ?????????????????????????

we were hit by these "vandals" three times! The cost of all the repairs were costly...over $1000.00! Not to mention we began to feel unsafe in our own house that we purchased a surveillance camera, motion detector lights, and had our locks changed in the house. I highly doubt that they will pay for the safeguards that we had to take! But really???? No charges???? This is completely ridiculous!!!

Wow, three times and more than $1,000 in damages?! Horrible. Did you reach out to the police? You might be able to get restitution.

Yes, the police were called each time. The USC Police were extremely helpful and kept us in the "loop" regarding the investigation. Can you believe that the "vandals" even took a hatchet to the back window of my husbands car? In fact they smashed it so hard that it went thru the seat and down to the metal. It was senseless acts of vandalisms. They smashed two dozen eggs inside of my car along with smashing my rear view mirrors. Each act was done on different nights... hence we became worried for the safety of our family!

Wow, very understandable!

I think that everybody will be suprised when they find that only two people were the cause of all the damages (50 different acts of vandalism total) !!!!

This is upper saint Claire. We cannot allow our reputation as an outstanding community to be tarnished. Honestly disgusting.

No doubt these were some marijuana addicted kids high on weeds to blame.

These kids should be stoned. This will replicate the stones thrown through our windows!
Tim January 21, 2013 at 01:00 AM
