ASPINWALL (KDKA) – Three people have been arrested in connection with a vandalism spree in Aspinwall in December.
Two minors were arrested along with 18-year-old Raymond Anthony Niebel Jr.
Over 30 cars were vandalized on Dec. 26 and 27.
Police got several tips about the vehicle used in the spree. They also had surveillance from the Eat’n Park on Route 8.
A baseball bat and a BB gun were recovered that are believed to have been used in the vandalisms.
Identities of the minors have not been released, but one is from Indiana Township and the other is from Lawrenceville. Niebel is a student at Fox Chapel High School
Police described the acts as senseless.
“[The] parents have been cooperative on this. I think it’s appalling to them also. It’d be hard to make sense of this if it was your child. To my knowledge there wasn’t anything stolen from any of these vehicles. It was just pure vandalism,” Allegheny County Police Lt. Jeff Korczyk said.
Allegheny County Police are checking to see if the suspects are connected to other vandalisms reported in Lawrenceville.
