More vandalism in Ogdensburg


OGDENSBURG — Another day, another report of vandalism.

City police Friday saidthey received three criminal mischief calls Thursday night, capping a day in which they were kept busy answering several other vandalism-related calls.

Sgt. Michael Bouchard is convinced the same youthful offenders are behind the damage being done.

“They do stupid things all the time,” he said Friday. “I am under the impression that it is all the same group.”

Mr. Bouchard said the number of criminal mischief calls Thursday amounted to a “melee” for police.

nAt 8:15 p.m., a swing on a chain was seen being twisted by a youth in the playground at New York Avenue Park.
