Three teens caught blue-handed for felony vandalism

Posted: Updated:

Three teens are facing felony vandalism charges after they were caught blue-handed by police.

Three boys, ages 15, 17 and 19 are all charged with felony damage to property.

At 11:36 pm Tuesday, a witness in the 900-block of East 8th Street saw five people spray painting a business. Officers were given the description and spotted the suspects at another business at 6th Street and Cliff Avenue. Officers said they recognized two people that matched the witness description.

Officers said when they approached the business the suspects left out of the back of the building. However, the suspects were later caught at 8th Street and Highland Avenue.. Another suspect, who had been running through some bushes, was found at 6th Street and Sherman Avenue.

Blue paint was primarily used in all of the graffiti vandalism. Officers found a couple of the suspects had blue paint on their hands.

Each act of graffiti vandalism was listed between $25-$300 damage to buildings and some cars. Police said there was more than $2,000 damage total.

The 17-year-old, who had been hiding in the bushes, is also facing marijuana and paraphernalia charges. Police found the marijuana and paraphernalia in the teen's parked vehicle in the same area they found him, east of the 900-block on East 8th Street.

The 17-year-old was turned over to relatives. The 15-year-old went to the Juvenile Detention Center. The 19-year-old was sent to jail. Edgar Segura, 19, of Sioux Falls is expected to appear in court Wednesday on a charge of felony intentional damage to property.
