Seven Englewood juveniles were arrested in the early morning hours of June 13 in an incident involving vandalism to the U.S. Post Office on Boca Grande, underage drinking, two stolen golf carts and rowdy, loud arguments.
The Lee County Sheriff's Department charged Kyle Montalbano, 16; Connor Montalbano, 16; Colby Brophy, 16; Alec Jackson, 18; Robert Caspolich, 16; Dylan Mann, 16; and an unidentified juvenile with grand theft of a $3,000 golf cart owned by Kevin Stockdale.
The arrests followed after police investigated a report of loud arguing at 2:15 a.m. at Fifth Street and Railroad Avenue.
Stockdale said none of the adolescents, including Justin Montalbano, 15, were given permission to enter the property or remove any contents. The other golf cart owner declined to prosecute.
Connor Montalbano was also charged with obstruction without violence for failing to obey a direct police command. The charge stemmed from an incident at the police station on Boca Grande where Sgt. Jeff Corkhill reportedly told Montalbano to sit and he would not.
Corkhill reportedly grabbed Montalbano, who fell and hit his head against a desk. Emergency medical personnel cleared Montalbano, who allegedly said he had no injuries.
Justin Montalbano was charged with criminal mischief after police say he confessed to kicking in a post office window at 434 Fourth St. because he "was angry." Building owner Mark Spurgeon told police the estimated cost of the window was $500.
No underage drinking charges were filed although police reports indicate drinking was involved in the activities. All arrestees were taken to Lee County Jail without incident.
