(ORMOND BEACH, FLA) — Two teen girls, ages 12 to 13, face burglary charges after causing $350,000 in damage, smashing property and spray-painting graffiti at the Imperial Foam and Insulation company in Ormond Beach Thursday during Tropical Storm Nicole, according to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.
Authorities say the damage ranged from slashed bags of raw polystyrene material, spray-paint graffiti, fork lifts moved and crashed into products, and smashed property.
Two of the teenagers spray-painted their names onto the foam blocks. An employee of the Foam company entered the warehouse, eavesdropped into the spraying, and witnessed the girls escaping the scene, the sheriff’s office said.
The girls were caught down the street, trespassed from the property, and charged with burglary of a business and criminal mischief.
Both charges were enhanced felonies, due to the state of emergency.
