Merrick School District Superintendent Dr. Dominick Palma told Patch that two arrests have been made after there were multiple instances of property damage
at Chatterton Elementary School.
On three separate instances, two males have arrived on the premises of Chatterton at approximately midnight. After they spend some time roughhousing, they proceeded to physically damage the property.Like Merrick Patch on Facebook by clicking here.
The first instance occurred on the Fourth of July weekend. They returned about a month later, and their most recent encounter took place the last weekend of September.
“There is somebody that does malicious damage to the building,” James O’Beirne, the Director of Facilities, told Patch. “One time, he tore all the picnic tables that are open to the general public out of the ground. They were all anchored with some concrete, and he just turned them all over.”
The identity of the two men has not been released, but Palma added that they were arrested during the week of Dec. 23 and were charged with criminal mischief related to the vandalism. Nassau County Police were unable to recover documentation related to this case.MORE TOP NEWS
