AUGUSTA, Maine — Multiple charges have been filed in connection with a vandalism spree in Kennebec County that resulted in several thousand dollars in damage.

Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland said the damage was confined to vehicles and homes in Augusta and Chelsea. Six people have been charged, including three juveniles.

McCausland said the vandalism spree was fueled by alcohol, marijuana and a dislike of one of the victim’s choices of rap music.

McCausland said the following people have been charged with aggravated criminal mischief: Nathaniel Thibeau, 18, of Randolph and Spencer King, 18, of Gardiner, along with three 17-year-old boys. Patrick Simmons, 21, of West Gardiner was charged with providing the minors with alcohol.

Most of the damage to the houses were caused by items such as cement blocks and garden equipment being thrown through windows, while several mailboxes and a pickup truck were also damaged.
