Four juveniles and one adult have been arrested by Hannibal police for property damage. According to HPD the suspects were taken into custody on March 1.
The arrests stem from alleged orchestrated events in which they removed containers of milk or other liquid products from store shelves. They then purposely fell, causing the containers to break on the floor. The incidents were videotaped by the suspects and posted to internet sites, such as YouTube.
At least four local stores were victimized. Thus far three have pressed charges against the suspects. Other businesses where similar events have happened are encouraged to report them to law enforcement.
