Two more teens charged in Lexington Oaks clubhouse vandalism


Two more charged in clubhouse vandalism

Two more teens have been arrested on charges of vandalizing the upscale Lexington Oaks clubhouse and pool area early Sunday. The boys — ages 15 and 13, both residents of Lexington Oaks — were arrested Tuesday and charged with burglary of a structure.

A 17-year-old boy from Zephyrhills was arrested Monday on the same charge. The Times is not naming the teens because of their ages.

The boys are accused of lighting fires in the pool area, damaging a table, chair and kiddie pool, and breaking mirrors, a soap dispenser and a toilet at the clubhouse, which is rented out for weddings and banquets.
