SKOWHEGAN (AP) — Police say boys ages 8 and 10 have been charged in a vandalism spree at a Skowhegan auto repair shop that caused an estimated $10,000 in damage to several vehicles.
Police Chief Ted Blais said tires were slashed, paint was scratched, windshields smashed and bodies dented last weekend.
Blais said the results of the police investigation will be turned over to the juvenile division of the district attorney's office for possible prosecution.
Dominick Rinaldi Jr., co-owner of Rinaldi & Sons Auto Repairs, told the Morning Sentinel (http://bit.ly/16tQMN9 ) that one of the vehicles damaged is a 1961 Chrysler 300G, worth about $100,000.
He says he'll be on the hook to repair the vehicles, because the insurance deductible is applied to each car individually, not as a group.
