Two teens admit to slashing scores of tires | Charleston Daily Mail

What started off as a bet between friends snowballed into bad day for about 70 residents of Point Pleasant who woke up Saturday morning to find their vehicles' tires slashed.

Two Point Pleasant residents have given statements admitting their roles in the vandalism that occurred late Friday night and into the early hours of Saturday. One was arrested and charged Monday.

Police Chief Ernie Watterson said Timothy Rollins Jr., 19, and an unidentified 14-year-old boy, both of Point Pleasant, gave statements Monday admitting they slashed the tires of more than 70 vehicles within city limits. Rollins was arrested and charged with felony destruction of property. Police are working with the Mason County Prosecutor's Office on how to proceed against the 14-year-old.
