Three teenagers are facing criminal charges after allegedly breaking into and vandalizing at Middletown home on Sunday.
Officers were called to 840 Middletown-Warwick Road just after 7:30 p.m. on Sunday for a report of a burglary in progress, according to Middletown Police Chief Henry Tobin.
After arriving, the officers reportedly encountered 18-year-old Corey Blanchfield of South Cass Street, 18-year-old Probyn Morris of Marian Drive and a 17-year-old Middletown teen, who police did not identify.
Police later learned the teens had entered the home and broken windows, fixtures and doors inside the vacant home currently used for storage by Blue Grass Investments, causing an estimated $6,220 in damages, Tobin said.
Blanchfield also was found to be carrying a butterfly knife after being taken into custody, he added.
Each of the teens is charged with burglary, criminal mischief and conspiracy. Blanchfield also is charged with possession of a deadly weapon.
Blanchfield was released on a $6,000 unsecured bail, while Morris and the 17-year-old each were released on a $3,500 unsecured bail.
