Teen duo go on an expensive smashing spree

Share Canberra's trusted news:

TWO 17-year-old boys went on an expensive vandalism spree in July after they allegedly broke 138 building and vehicle windows.

The two boys caused about $100,000 worth of damage at a school in Deakin, Red Hill and Yarralumla, as well as a cafe in Manuka on July 9.

They will face the ACT Children’s Court today (November 19).
