Four male juveniles are suspected of repeatedly vandalizing the Montgomery County Government Regional Services Center in Bethesda.
The building, located at 4805 Edgemoor Lane, has been targeted by vandals about seven times since mid-October, Montgomery County police spokeswoman Lucille Baur said. The most recent incident occurred Friday, when officers saw four male teenagers write graffiti on the walls and windows with markers.
In previous incidents, the center's walls and windows were also tagged with graffiti, police said.
The officers approached the teens, who fled. One 14-year-old teenager was apprehended Friday. The other three, all age 15, were identified. Each of the four teenagers has been charged with malicious destruction of property.
The suspects' names were not released because they are juveniles. All have been released into the custody of family members. Police are determining whether they are responsible for the prior incidents, but they have not yet been charged in those cases..
