Boys & Girls Club vandalized

According to crime statistics, the start of summer also means an increase in the number of juvenile criminal mischief reports. The first major attack from those with too much time on their hands and not enough respect for their community, involves graffiti found at the Boys & Girls Club of Ennis.

“Juvenile crime is going to increase due to school being out,” said Det. Sgt. Jeff Smith.

According to the incident report, Officer Rodney Rickman was dispatched to 1211 S. Clay St. in reference to a criminal mischief call. Rickman reported the south side of the Boys & Girls Club building was vandalized with spray paint. A can of spray paint was found at the scene, however, Smith said the can was wet and the moisture would make it more difficult to retrieve fingerprints from the can. The can was logged into evidence.

Although the paintings suggest gang insignia, Smith said there are “no known gangs in this town. Only a bunch of young kids that want to be gang members.
Smith said there are no witnesses and no known suspects at this point but the case is under investigation.
