Freshly fallen snow led Brandon police directly to a teenage boy who now faces charges for smashing a vehicle window just after 12 a.m. on Thursday.
A resident of Imperial Crescent called police to say that they had seen a boy smash the window. Officers who responded had no trouble following the suspect’s footsteps to a nearby home, where the teenager was identified as matching a description of the suspect.
A 16-year-old Brandon boy was arrested and has been charged with mischief to property under $5,000. He has since been released to appear in court in late April.
Police say the vandalism was apparently a random act.
