5 Teens Arrested After Community Garden Vandalized

DUNWOODY, Ga. (AP) -- Police in an Atlanta suburb have arrested five teenagers who are accused of destroying much of a community garden.
Dunwoody police say the crime occurred during the overnight hours about three weeks ago at Brook Run Park.
The vandals smashed structures, fencing and plants throughout the garden and destroyed food that was to be donated to a local food bank.
Dunwoody police tell WSB Radio (http://bit.ly/HXqojY) that five 16-year-olds have been charged with felony damage to property. Police say four of the teens are from Dunwoody and one is from nearby Roswell.
Police Sgt. Mike Carlson says authorities are not certain of the motive for the vandalism.

    Make them work out the cost for repairs. Teach them that stuff cost money, hard earned money. Make them work in the garden they tore up, when they are not earning money doing odd jobs to pay for repairs in the garden.This very thing could keep them from a life of crime.
