Three teen boys arrested in Centralia car-vandalism spree

Three teens police believe are responsible for a vandalism spree that included slashing tires and smashing out car windows Thursday morning have been arrested, according to a Centralia Police Department press release.

The Associated Press reported that Centralia police and the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office received 33 reports of vandalized vehicles with slashed tires and broken windows on Thursday. Most of the incidents were reported after 7 a.m. Thursday, but are believed to have occurred between 3:30 a.m. and 6 a.m.

Following up on a tip, Centralia police were able to identify three suspects, 2 14-year-old boys and a 15-year-old, according to the release. After interviewing them, an officer booked all three into the Lewis County Juvenile Detention Center on suspicion of first-degree malicious mischief.

Centralia police said previously that they believed the suspects used a pocket knife to slash the tires and used rocks or other available items to smash car windows.
