JAMESTOWN – Four individuals have been arrested following an investigation into a spree of vandalism and criminal mischief acts that took place in late November.
According to the Jamestown Police Department, 21-year-old Kyle Seeking of Jamestown faces several felony charges for damaging both private and city property and causing an estimated $30,000 in damages. His accomplices included three juveniles whose names are not being released due to their age.
The charges are the result of criminal mischief complaints from Nov. 21 to Nov. 26 after damage was reported along First Street and the Jamestown Riverwalk.
The four are allegedly responsible for breaking windows to numerous businesses, homes and vehicles, as well as damaging lighting fixtures along the Riverwalk and behind the National Comedy Center. At one point the group also allegedly threw rocks and snowballs at moving vehicles from the viaduct on North Main and Foote Avenue.
Video surveillance from local businesses helped to identify the suspects.
Seekings was charged with six counts of felony second-degree criminal mischief and seven counts of felony third-degree criminal mischief. He was awaiting arraignment in Jamestown City Court.
The three juveniles will be petitioned to family court.
