Charges sought in paintball vandalisms

ENID, Okla. — Police have filed for charges against an 18-year-old and two 17-year-olds in connection with at least 13 incidents of vandalism involving paintballs in early February.

Enid Police Department Detective John Robinson took the case and was able to link the three to the overnight shenanigans. Police took 13 reports of paintball vandalism occurring the night of Feb. 2 and early morning of Feb. 3 in the northwest part of town.

“We were having muster, and there were a lot of these reports,” Robinson said.

The detective said he was assigned the case. Robinson said he had prior knowledge about the sport of paintball and was able to determine who the three were by where they purchased the paintballs used in the crimes.

Robinson said once he identified the three, he made contact with each.

“All three admitted to their involvement in the vandalisms,” Robinson said. “There were a total of 41 counts between all three.”

He said he filed an affidavit against the 18-year-old and forwarded his investigation to the Garfield County District Attorney’s Office to determine if charges will be filed.

His reports on the two 17-year-olds were forwarded to the Office of Juvenile Affairs to determine if any disciplinary actions will be taken.
