PRICE CITY, Utah, Aug. 18, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — Authorities have arrested two teens suspected of breaking windows on vehicles in Price City on Tuesday night.

John David Stickney, 18, of Spring Glen, was arrested and booked into the Carbon County jail on a charge of second-degree felony criminal mischief, according to a Facebook post from the Price City Police Department.

A 17-year-old male juvenile from Price was booked into the Castle Valley Youth Detention facility on the same charge.

Price City patrol officers were dispatched Wednesday morning after receiving multiple reports of criminal mischief in various neighborhoods of the city.

“The primary target of the vandals was side-view mirrors of vehicles parked on the street,” the news release stated. “One suspect drove down the street while the other suspect wielded a bat, breaking the mirrors as they drove by. At this time, there are over 60 known individual victims.

“Notable victims include Pinnacle Charter School, which had two buses sustain 28 broken windows, and the Carbon School District bus garage, with one bus sustaining 10 broken windows.”

A suspect vehicle was identified, and by 11 a.m. Wednesday, police said they had recovered the bat, and the two suspects were detained.

The Carbon County Attorney will review reports to determine exact formal charges for Stickney. He is currently on a plea in abeyance with the Carbon County Justice Court for a previous arrest involving possession of a controlled substance and paraphernalia.

Anyone who is an unreported victim of this criminal episode is asked to contact the PCPD at 435-636-3190, or Price Public Safety Dispatch at 435-637-0890. Please refer to case number 20161210.
