Summer vandals target Beltrone

Local businesses near The Crossings have also complained of kids on bicycles and skateboards loitering and committing vandalism, said Van Alstyne.

The area has a number of railings and loading docks that the kids perform tricks on.

"Because of [the living center's] location, the kids do cut through The Crossings and come from Wolf Road," he said. "A lot of times they're not doing anything so we do a contact card with them and then move them along. If the kids were committing crimes there, they would be arrested."

McClune asked why more parents aren't wondering what they're kids are up to.

"Maybe parents could be a little more involved," she said, adding the "doorbell ditch" incident in nearby Bethlehem that resulted in injury for one teen should have taught them a lesson. "You would think those kids would be scared to do anything off color."
