Baltimore County Police arrested three men after 87 vehicles in Arbutus were vandalized early in the morning of Oct. 9.
Tyler Westphal, an 18-year-old Arbutus resident; Elijah Kelly, a 19-year-old Manchester, Pa., resident; and Brady White, a 19-year-old Dayton, Md., resident, are charged with destruction of property for a totaling $17,950 in vehicle damages, said police spokeswoman Louise Rogers-Feher.
Police responded to a call for destruction of property at 4:28 a.m. Oct. 9 in the 1000 block of Downton Road, according to Rogers-Feher.
“While en route, they were flagged down by another person who said they had been awakened by the sound of breaking glass,” she said.
The man gave police a description of a white Buick that he saw at the scene.
“When he looked out his window, he observed the vehicle used by the suspects who are now in jail,” she said. “We gave the description immediately out to all the units in the area.”
Shortly afterward, police located a white Buick that matched the description given to police.
“The office saw a metal baseball bat, along with shards of broken glass spread out across the rear of the car,” Rogers-Feher said.
“We got them, they’ve been arrested, they’ve been charged,” she said Thursday. “They are in jail unless they’ve posted bail.”
