A Springdale man is accused of causing thousands of dollars in property damage after breaking into two separate buildings. Police say 19-year-old Stetson Shelton and three other juvenile suspects broke into a Junior High and the next night he and two juvenile suspects broke into the Jones Center.
Police say on May 15, George Junior High in Springdale was broken into. They reported $6,000 in property damage and say nothing was stolen. Records show Shelton admitted his crimes at George Junior High and told police the four were wearing black masks. They show Shelton told police the only damage he caused was breaking a picture, knocking many items on the floor, knocking a flower box off a fence, and knocking over a refrigerated soda machine, which fell on to a different table breaking other items, and that the majority of the damage was done by the others.
Police say on May 16, the Jones Center was broken into, only $10 was stolen, but the door was pried open and the cash register was broken.
Shelton is charged with commercial burglary and three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
