Not Terrorism, Teenagers

Yesterday, Hugh Hewitt broke the news that a water plant facility had been broken into in Massachusetts. More than 9,000 residents were told not to drink the water as it was tested for contaminants.

This morning, two teenagers were arrested in connection with that break in. AP reports:

"At this point, the police are considering this to be a vandalism incident, not an act of terrorism, but all due diligence should be used until test come back, hopefully negative," he said. "We know for sure that when they tampered with the vent cover at the top of the tower some debris had fallen into the water supply."

The two 15-year-old boys, whose names were not released because of their ages, were charged with malicious destruction of property, tampering with a public water supply and polluting the water supply, all felonies, and trespassing, Gilmore said. He said a 15-year-old girl had not been arrested but likely would be charged with trespassing.

The rest of the story is here.
