Authorities have arrested four juveniles after receiving multiple reports of vandalism to businesses and vehicles in Ottumwa over the Christmas holiday. The vandals are accused of damaging property inside Beach Ottumwa, and throwing items in the pool. They are also accused of causing damage to several other businesses and smashing out windows of vehicles on residential Streets.
All four juveniles were arrested Saturday afternoon and face charges of trespassing, criminal mischief, theft and arson. Investigators believe adult suspects may have taken part in the vandalism spree over those few days. Additional arrests are pending.
