The damages totalled about $16,000.

After receiving reports of vandalism to vehicles in the Fred Meyer parking lot, an investigation identified a 17-year-old boy as a person of interest, said a Juneau Police Department spokesperson.

JPD received an online report of vehicle vandalism on April 11, said Lt. Krag Campbell in a press release. JPD civilian investigators, working with Fred Meyer loss prevention personnel, wre able to identify a total of seven incidents of vandalism between April 8 and April 22.

During that investigation, a 17-year-old boy was identified as a person of interest. He was interviewed by the JPD and his parents were notified of the allegations of vandalism, Campbell said.

The case has been forwarded to the Johnson Youth Center for criminal charges. At least seven vehicles were vandalized, causing estimated damage of more than $16,000, Campbell said.
