Police are charging five local teenagers with a total of 200 counts of mischief, 40 each, in relation to a vandalism spree which left 72 vehicles with smashed windows, mirrors and lights in the early morning hours of Aug. 23.

The Lloydminster RCMP are asking all victims of the crimes to submit any photographs, damage estimates and invoices to help with the investigation.

On Sept. 1 police announced that they had identified the five teenage boys - one 16-year-old and four 17-year-olds who live outside of town on the Alberta side - who they strongly believed were responsible for the city-wide vandalism.

Police were first notified of the vandalism on Aug. 23 at 2:30 a.m. It is believed that the damage was done between 2 and 4 a.m. Police say the vehicles were randomly targeted and most of them parked on the street in residential areas.
