Pair held on $200K bonds
By MARGARET BAKER
Two young men accused of causing more than $30,000 in damage to the new Pascagoula Senior Center reportedly told police they broke into the building early Monday morning because they had nothing better to do, Pascagoula Police Lt. Shannon Broom said.
“They were just bored,” Broom said Tuesday. “They sprayed the fire extinguishes off in the building and then walked through it.
“They left very distinctive footprints. We canvassed the area and came up with the two suspects.”
City Judge Michael Fondren on Tuesday set bonds at $200,000 each for the suspects, identified as Corey Anthony Hanes, 19, and James Garrett Holloway, 18, both of Pascagoula.
Police arrested the two in a room at the U.S. 90 Studio Suites, where Hanes lives.
In the room, Broom said, police investigators found the dust-covered shoes that were worn by the vandals who broke into the building on Live Oak Avenue, spraying the fire extinguishers and damaging doors, windows and other items.
Each was charged with felony malicious mischief and commercial burglary. They remained jailed late Tuesday.
