A Maryland man and two Delaware teens were arrested and charged with causing $250,000 in damage to multiple athletics fields at Odessa High School, according to the Delaware State Police.
Police arrested Cameron Criddle, 18, of Galena, Maryland, a 17-year-old juvenile male of Townsend and a 17-year-old juvenile male of Clayton.
During the early hours of Dec. 12, the suspects used a vehicle to cause significant damage to the fields, which Appoquinimink School District representatives estimated at $250,000 in damage.
District representatives were not immediately available for comment.
Troopers canvassed the property where they found evidence identifying the suspect vehicle. They went to the Townsend 17-year-old's residence and took him into custody.
After interviewing the teen, troopers identified Criddle and the 17-year-old male of Clayton, who turned themselves in.
The three males were charged with felony criminal mischief for causing $5,000 or more in property damage and second-degree conspiracy.
The Townsend juvenile was arraigned and released on a $10,000 unsecured bond. Criddle and the Clayton teen were arraigned and released on their own recognizance.
