UPDATE: Teen charged following vandalism at Hebron Carnival

A Dorchester County teenager has been arrested, after the Hebron Carnival was apparently vandalized.

It all reportedly happened on Sunday. The Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office says their investigation into the incident, started around 7:10 AM on Monday. According to the report, eight separate building on the grounds of the Hebron Volunteer Fire Department Carnival, were burglarized. The doors of the buildings were apparently forced open, causing several thousand dollars worth of damages.

Hebron Carnival officials tell 47 ABC, food and drink stands were destroyed along with the steel doors. A 50 inch LED flat screen television, and two free standing oscillating fans were reportedly stolen.
