DUNWOODY - Another group of teens find themselves in trouble with the law after a neighborhood park was vandalized.
This time the target was the Brook Run Community Garden in Dunwoody and five teens have been charged.
"It looked like a tornado hit the garden," said Amanda Harris. "Lettuce everywhere. Plants destroyed."
Harris tends a plot at the Dunwoody garden where the produce is later donated to a local food pantry.
"We had all kinds of food ready to go for that Tuesday over there. Completely destroyed," she said.
Dunwoody Police have charged five 16-year-olds with felony damage to property. Four of the teens are from Dunwoody, while the fifth is from Roswell.
"We're not sure what the motive was," said Sgt. Mike Carlson, "probably more mischief - doing something in the middle of the night that they were not supposed to do.
Harris, who once worked in the Juvenile Justice system, thinks the teens should be ordered to do community service for the people who run the park.
Last month a group of teens from East Paulding County High were caught vandalizing the school. Among them the valedictorian and senior class president Jason Zimmerman who was expelled and banned from graduation. Zimmerman's scholarship to Georgia Tech is also in jeopardy.
