Teenagers admit to vandalizing office with racist graffiti

April 1, 2019

BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Police in Vermont say two teenagers have admitted they vandalized an office with racist graffiti last week.

The two juveniles were questioned by Bennington police Thursday on multiple charges, and their case files will be submitted to the Bennington County prosecutor’s office next week. The Bennington Banner reports a third teenager is still being investigated in connection with the case.

Police say the three teenagers wrote “white power” and drew a swastika and other obscene images on a former textile mill. Police say their actions were caught on surveillance video.

Bennington police say they haven’t found any connection between this vandalism and three others this month.
