A picture is worth a thousand words, or in this case — an arrest.
On Sept. 24, a resident of the 6200 block of Wallace reported a picture that had been burned was placed on the front porch with a vulgar threat written on the back.
The content of the picture revealed the suspects and after questioning two female juveniles, they admitted to leaving the picture.
They were charged with criminal mischief.
