A woman and a 13-year-old minor were arrested and charged with doing intentional damage to a monument in connection with vandalism to political signs Thursday near the Accomack County Voter Registration Office on Joynes Neck Road in Accomac.
In addition to pulling down signs for Republican candidates including gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin, an electrical box inside Sawmill Park allegedly was tagged with spray paint and a horse trailer and garage door on property nearby also were tagged with spray paint, according to Accomack County Sheriff’s Office documents.
When an officer responded to the scene, a witness told him she had seen two people tearing down political signs and vandalizing property in the park and across the street at an old grader shed, according to the documents.
The officer found the two suspects walking along the fence line in the park, near the office.
Natalie Bahns, 18, of Accomac, and the minor were arrested and charged.
