An Effingham teen was arrested and charged with three counts of criminal damage to property. The incidents date back to May, when two vehicles sustained significant damage while parked near the Lincoln Land Building. In late November, spray-painted graffiti was found on multiple buildings and outbuildings in the 900 block of West Virginia and the 400 block of North Mulberry. Damage was estimated at more than $3,000. The suspect was released to parents with notice to appear.
