Police: Two teens responsible for Voorheesville graffiti

VOORHEESVILLE, N.Y. -- Authorities say graphic and bizarre images were spray painted at the high school, the village library, and the home of a high school employee in Voorheesville.

The sheriff's office says two teens are responsible.

Haidee Smith, whose daughter attends school in Voorheesville, is upset that the sign at the main entrance, which was designed by one of the students at the high school and funded by the community, was tagged up with a picture of a cat.

"Where's the money going to come from to fix it?" she asked.

Police believe a 19 and 18-year old were behind the graffiti. Officials also believe the two targeted the Voorheesville library. The graphic drawings are now covered up by a mat, but the damage didn't stop there. The two allegedly destroyed a small white SUV that belongs to an employee of a school district one of the suspects once attended.

The two teens were arrested after police found pictures on social media linking them to the crime. They are being charged with Criminal Mischief among a slew of other charges.
