On February 16, 2014 Middletown Public Library was vandalized with spray-paint. The library was under construction, receiving a complete makeover – additions by O’Connor Construction.
There are a few leads on the case, local police found backpacks filled with used spray-paint canisters and receipts from local hardware stores.
“It’s a shame that we have to put the work on hold while the police figure things out,” said Phil, a general contractor for O’Connor Construction.
“I hope that everything gets sorted out soon so that people can go on enjoying the library,” said a representative from O’Connor Construction.
Local laws are very strict on minors who perform such acts. Juvenile crimes (such as vandalism) can lead to large fines, community service, and even time spent at a detention center.
