Third teen accused of spray painting EMS building, truck
EDEN, N.C. — A third person has been charged following a vandalism incident on Sept.30 at an EMS building in Eden.
According to police, Darrian Andre Ellison, 19, of Eden, was charged with eight counts of injury to real property and two counts of injury to real property.
Two other teenagers were charged after Eden police said all three spray painted an EMS building and the side of a truck.
Christopher Kelly Cunningham, 16, and Luis Enrique Garcia, 18, both of Eden, have also been charged in the two incidences.
The three suspects allegedly spray painted a garage door at the Rockingham County Emergency building and the side of a truck in the parking lot of Cunningham Tire.
The incident involving the EMS building was reported around 12:15 a.m. Monday and the second incident was reported shortly later at 328 W. Stadium Drive.
Eden police said they recognized the graffiti to be the same symbol and number as a tattoo that Cunningham has tattooed to his forearm.
Authorities said they went to Cunningham’s home and found a spray paint can and the same type of graffiti spray painted on the roadway in front of his home.
All three face charges of injury to real property and injury to personal property and will appear in court mid-November.
