ORMOND BEACH, Fla. — Volusia County deputies said three teenage girls “created their own disaster” while vandalizing a foam and insulation business in Ormond Beach.
Deputies said the teens, ages 12 to 13, caused more than $350,000 in damage Thursday to Imperial Foam & Insulation.
The damage included slashed bags of raw polystyrene material, forklifts that were moved and crashed into products, smashed property and spray-paint graffiti, deputies said.
Deputies said two of the girls spray-painted their names onto foam blocks.
According to a report, an employee entered the warehouse, overheard the spraying and then saw the girls running from the building.
Deputies said the girls were caught down the street.
According to a news release, each girl had trespassed on the property. They were charged with burglary of a business and criminal mischief, both enhanced felonies due to the state of emergency.
