Juveniles blamed for vandalism


It’s been weeks since the vandalism of a SW-WRAP bus, but the case is believed to have been solved.

Green River Police detective Luke Benson said the SW-WRAP bus was not the only item vandalized around that time and due to nature of the crime, they were able to tie it and a few other cases together.

The detective work resulted in two juveniles being accused of the crimes. The case has been handed over to the Sweetwater County Attorney’s Office.

The bus, which was parked near SW-WRAP’s building, had damage to each of its windows.

Many of the windows were wither completely shattered or kicked in.

Windows that were not busted out were left with huge holes in them. 

SW-WRAP director Cathie Hughes said in an earlier interview with the Green River Star, that although this isn’t the first time the group has been the victim of vehicle vandalism, it is probably the first time they will not have the funds to cover the damages. The nonprofit organization has a tight budget and cannot afford the $1,000 plus in repairs to fix the bus.

Previously, Hughes told the newspaper that the vehicle had its windshield shattered in an earlier attack. After replacing the windshield, she said they also had problems with unknown individuals gaining access to the vehicle and draining its battery.

Benson previously stated the case was being investigated as a felony-level crime due to the amount of damaged sustained by the vehicle.
