Pot Smoking Vandals Attack Christmas Decorations in Simpsonville

Four 17-year-old boys, seemingly under the influence of marijuana, caused nearly $1,000 worth of damage to Simpsonville residents’ Christmas displays before being pulled over for driving erratically. Police found marijuana on two of the teens and all were charged with malicious damage of private property.

From WYFF:

SIMPSONVILLE, S.C. — Deputies said that four teenagers are accused of destroying Christmas decorations at several Simpsonville homes.

Greenville County deputies said that they were investigating a report of damage done to a 6-foot tall snowman on Dylan Oaks drive when they saw a dark-color SUV driving erratically on Wolf Run Road.

Deputies stopped the SUV and said they determined that the four 17 year olds in it were responsible for the damage.

Wesley Batson, Hayden Calvert, Zachery Mauldin and Matthew Trojan, all of Simpsonville, are charged with malicious damage to personal property. Batson and Calvert are also charged with possession of marijuana. Deputies said that they found the marijuana after the teens were arrested.

WYFF also has a listing of the damage just in case some kind hearted readers would like to help the families replace their decorations. They also have the mugshots of the teens so that you can shake your heads ruefully at them if you see them out and about. Public shaming works people, let’s get to it.
