Court appearance’s near for park vandals

As the result of a news article in the March 14 edition of the Rushville Republican, officers from the Rushville Police Department arrested two individuals in connection with vandalism in South Veterans Memorial Park one day after the news article hit the street.

“Had it not been for someone seeing the article I don’t known that we would be at this point in the case. After all nearly a week had passed and we had no clues in the case up to that point,” Rushville Chief of Police Craig Tucker said.

Due to their age, the names of the individuals were not given, but according to chief Tucker a 12 and 14 year are facing charges in the case.

Damage was realized to a walking bridge that spans Hodges Branch and a nearby gazebo in Rushville largest city park. According to parks director Danny Mathews, the cost of the damage was listed a $3,500.

Tuesday, it was learned that court appearances for the two suspects in the case are approaching.

As a result of the court system, a hearing for one of the individuals charged in the case will be heard in Judge David Northam’s Rush Superior Court and Judge Brian Hill will handle the other individual named in the case in Rush Circuit Court.

“One of the suspects will have a hearing next week and the other has a hearing date set for May 17,” Chief Tucker said. He was unsure which case will be heard first.

According to Catherine Custer of the Rush County Probation Department, the case is still pending and no additional information is being made available.

Read more on this case as information is made available in future editions of the Rushville Republican.
