At 8:59 pm on July 9th, 2013, the Gillette Police Department responded to the 700 block of Express Drive. Neighbors at the Remington Apartments reported they had witnessed a child jumping on the hoods of automobiles. Officers on scene were able the identify four vehicles with damage consistent with witness accounts. Gillette Police Lieutenant Brent Wasson said officers made contact with the 13-year-old suspect. Wasson said the child told officers that she was on the vehicles to "dance to her own song."
Wasson said the child's parents were contacted and they arrived to take her home. Wasson said based on the fact that damage to the vehicles exceeds $1,000, and the fact the suspect is a juvenile, a report of the incident will be forwarded to the Campbell County Attorney's Office. Wasson added that as of this morning, officers were not certain that all vehicles damaged in the incident had been identified, so additional reports of damage may need to be added. One of the vehicles with damage that was identfied was a 2011 Dodge Charger owned by the Wyoming Highway Patrol.
