Three vehicles were damaged, including one that had a swastika drawn in the window, early this morning in downtown Concord, according to the police.

The police have arrested five people and charged two, 17-year-old Travis Clark of Loudon and 18-year-old Jonathan Cappucci of Concord, with resisting arrest and criminal mischief. The three others are juveniles, according to Concord police Lt. Steve Smagula, who said charges will also be filed against them soon.

Smagula said the police became aware of suspicious activity in the Capital Commons parking garage at about 1:16 a.m. He said the teens took four fire extinguishers stored at the garage and sprayed the exterior of three vehicles. One of the vehicles was also heavily damaged on the interior, while lewd images and a swastika were drawn on the outside of another, the police said.

"When the officer showed up, the kids scattered. He took charge and managed to corral them," Smagula said, adding that other officers arrived quickly to help.

Smagula said he's confident the officers were able to arrest everyone involved. He said there doesn't appear to be a motivation for the crime.

"These kids certainly had a lower regard for property, and I think they made a poor decision," he said.

Clark and Cappucci have both been released on $4,000 personal recognizance bail and will be arraigned April 29 at Concord's district court.

The police said they are continuing the investigate the incident. Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call the Concord Regional Crimeline at 226-3100.
