Three youths face charges for vandalism at museum / January 03, 2018

Charges are pending against three juvenile suspects in the destruction of Christmas displays and other property at MacCallum More Museum and Gardens in Chase City on Christmas night.

The three suspects were caught on video camera as they moved through the gardens breaking path lights and knocking over statues and lighting displays. In one still image from the video, one of the juveniles can be seen holding a broken path light.

Museum director Liz Lowrance estimated the damage at between $1,500 and $2,000.

Chase City Police Chief Jay Jordan said his office was flooded with tips on the day following publication of the story about the destruction. These tips, along with the video, helped police identify the culprits. His office will seek a petition to arrest the suspects once Mecklenburg County Juvenile and Domestic Court reopens following a holiday break.

Arrests will take place once the petition is granted, Jordan said.

The MacCallum More museum staff installed the video cameras after vandals broke lights and knocked over benches in the gardens in October. The hope was that the cameras would deter future damage to the historic gardens.
