WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP — Two local boys are accused of breaking multiple windows and vandalizing a camp on Weld Road/Route 156 in Franklin County.

The owner hadn’t been to the camp since early July and reported the damage Wednesday, Sheriff Scott Nichols Sr. said.

Twelve windows, including expensive front windows, were broken, laundry soap was dumped around, furniture tipped over and items spray-painted, he said. “The camp was “basically trashed.”

Witnesses reported seeing two youths on scooters in the area.

Deputy Alec Frost canvassed the neighborhood, interviewed two boys, ages 12 and 14, who admitted to the crimes, Nichols said.

Frost arrested them Thursday on charges of burglary and criminal mischief, the sheriff said. They were released to their parents.

The case will be handled by the Maine Juvenile Court.
