Another day. Another report of vandalism in Ogdensburg.

City police Friday said that they 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 on Thursday amounted to a “melee” for police.

The incidents were all believed to have occurred Wednesday night. They were reported to police as:

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

—At 7:25 p.m., a window was broken at a residence at 720 Montgomery St.

—At 6:21 p.m. at a residence at 330 Seymour St., a vehicle was sprayed with a fire extinguisher.

—At 11:30 a.m. at a residence at 400 Caroline St., iron fence poles were bent over.

—At 9:45 a.m. at a residence at 322 Franklin St., a U.S. flag was stolen.

—At 9:10 a.m., a rock was thrown through a window of an excavator at the Lake Street pedestrian bridge construction project.

—At 9:08 a.m. a fence was broken and night lights removed from the garden at St. John’s Episcopal Church, 500 Caroline St.

—At 6:43 a.m., a van was damaged by paint from a bucket in the parking lot at Salvation Army, 401 Franklin St.

Anyone with information about the vandalism is asked to call the police department at 393-1551.
