Charlestown tweens get first-hand lesson in the value of a neighborhood crime watch
Boston Police report that when basement windows along High and Green streets in Charlestown started getting broken on a regular basis, officers quickly identified a group of tweens as the culprits - thanks to vigilant members of the neighborhood crime watch.
The following evening [March 11] a concerned neighbor immediately called police after spotting the individuals believed to be responsible for the vandalism the day before. Officers responded and spoke with a group of young males ages 10-13. Officers brought the kids home to their parents and had a discussion about some of the recent incidents of vandalism.
The area has not had another act of vandalism since that time.
