HAMILTON, Ohio -- A group of teenagers accused of vandalizing dozens of vehicles in Hamilton are scheduled to appear in in Butler County Juvenile Court Tuesday morning.

Police said the incident happened between June 13 and 14 in the Lindenwald neighborhood.

At least 25 vehicles were reportedly damaged.

Four juveniles, ages 15 and 16, were arrested in the case.

Officials said two of the teens were charged with 25 counts of criminal damaging. The other two were charged with four counts of criminal damaging because police said they were only involved in a portion of the incidents.

In a previous story, Hamilton police Sgt. Ed Buns said, "They have no respect for other people's property. They think it's funny. They think it's cute. They think it's a game."

The sergeant said damaging someone else's property is something the Hamilton police refuse to allow.

All teens were put on home incarceration and were told not to speak to each other or the victims in the case.

They are scheduled to appear in court at 2 p.m.
