Student Charged in Vandalism Case

Written By Editor on 11/18/20 | 11/18/20

FRANKLIN - Sheriff Craig S. DuMond announced that a vandalism incident at the Franklin Central School athletic field last week has resulted in a Franklin youth being arrested and charged with menacing.

On Thursday morning, November 12, 2020, Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the Franklin Central School to investigate an incident involving vulgar words being sprayed on the athletic field with shaving cream.  

During the course of the investigation by Deputies and School officials, it was learned that one of the students involved in the vandalism complaint had threatened another student by displaying what appeared to be a firearm and verbally threatening to use it on that student if he were to cooperate with the police investigation.  Investigation by Deputies led to the seizure of the involved weapon which was determined it to be a BB gun.

On Friday evening, November 13, 2020, Sheriff’s Deputies located, arrested and charged a 15-year-old male with one count of menacing in the second degree. The juvenile was issued a juvenile appearance ticket directing him to appear before Delaware County Probation Department with his parent/guardian at a later date to answer for the charge.

Franklin Central School administration is handling the vandalism to the athletic field by the involved youths as an internal disciplinary matter.
