    Three teens charged with vandalism

    Three Vermont teenagers are facing multiple charges in connection with a pellet-gun vandalism spree that allegedly damaged more than 100 vehicles, businesses, and homes, causing tens of thousands of dollars in damage. Police said an 18-year-old from West Rutland and two 17-year-olds, from Castleton and West Rutland, have been charged with felony and misdemeanor counts of malicious mischief for allegedly shooting out windows with a pellet gun between 3 a.m. Wednesday and Friday afternoon in Rutland and West Rutland. Rutland Police Chief James Baker said it’s the worst vandalism in the city in recent memory, with at least 111 reports filed in Rutland alone.
