Six boys ranging in age from 8 to 15 were taken into custody early Monday after causing thousands of dollars in damage to 10 milk delivery trucks, according to the Laurel County sheriff's office.
The Borden milk trucks, which were parked in a gated, fenced-in lot two miles north of London off U.S. 25 North, "had their windshields busted out, electronics torn out, doors forced open and extensive damage," according to a news release from the sheriff's office. A company car and refrigerated trailers also were damaged.
State police and sheriff's deputies responded to a report of juveniles "destroying vehicles" at 1:08 a.m. and "followed tracks from the scene to a nearby residence where muddy shoes were found outside the front door."
The six boys were charged with first-degree criminal mischief and second-degree criminal trespassing.
They were taken to the sheriff's office in London and were released to their parents and grandparents after court dates were assigned, according to the release.
