Three boys accused of vandalizing Lakes Region Boys and Girls Club
LACONIA — Three boys were taken into custody in connection with the extensive damage done to the Boys and Girls Club of the Lakes Region, but the club remains closed.
Police Captain William Clary said the boys, ages 14, 15 and 16, were released to their parents and will be prosecuted in the juvenile division of the Circuit Court.
Clary said the water damage to the basement is extensive from water left running in a sink. He said the flooded area is drying out slowly.
Other damage was caused by food items being thrown around inside the building.
The damage was discovered Monday morning.
Clary said evidence left behind led to the trio who were not club members of the club, but could have benefitted from membership.
He said the afterschool program will operate for the time being at the middle school, but parents who counted on the before school program are out of luck.
