UPDATE: 16 Year Old Facing Charges After Uptown Spree

City police kept hopping early this morning with a spree of vandalism and damage to vehicles.

Just before 4am, officers responded after a report that someone climbed a rear fire escape behind an apartment building on Germain Street and threw a concrete block on to the roof of a parked car below.

Sgt. Jay Henderson tells us a short time later that was another call about more vehicle damage on Duke street.

He says it appears the person walked up onto the hood of the vehicle and on to the roof smashing out of the sunroof.

Just after 5am, officers found a 16 year old in a vehicle on Orange street. 

He tried to take off and damaged the vehicle in the process and is a suspect in the damage to vehicles earlier this morning.  

He was found with stolen property, arrested and is facing many charges.

The teen's case was adjourned until February 5th.   He will be held in custody until then.
