It happened on the Wednesday night when area church groups gathered on Celebration Plaza for a time of fellowship and worship. The pillars surrounding the kiosk at the Hopkins County Veterans’ Memorial at Celebration Plaza were vandalized with a sketch of a human face and the word ROMEO and other scratching. A 14-year old juvenile has confessed to causing damage to the Hopkins County Veteran’s Memorial. The juvenile, accompanied by his parents, confessed his work to Sulphur Springs Police Detective David Gilmore this week.

According to Police Chief Jay Sanders, the juvenile’s confession was made in the presence of his parents who supported the decisions made regarding the arrest Tuesday. Sanders said the misdemeanor penalties for a juvenile call for the teen’s case to be turned over to juvenile probation who will handle restitution and punishment. The restitution will reimburse the cost of correcting the damage done to the Memorial kiosk.
