Three high school freshmen have been identified as the vandals who did $500 worth of damage at the Palisades YMCA Pumpkin Patch last Saturday night.
The male teenagers posted themselves on Instagram after the Y’s Pumpkin Patch was closed in Temescal Canyon. Sunday morning, a worker arrived and found empty Coors cans inside the Patch and about 20 destroyed pumpkins.
Several residents recognized the three teens in the photo, when it was posted, and reported the names to Circling the News.
The Instagram photo and names have been turned over to YMCA Executive Director Jim Kirtley and to LAPD Senior Lead Officer Michael Moore.
Circling the News hopes that the boys will be pressed into service to repay the debt and to find some guidance so that this will be a one-time occurrence.
