Five young people were arraigned Tuesday in a vandalism case that has people all over Michigan scratching their heads.
The five are charged with malicious destruction of property and conspiracy in connection with the damage to 75 displays outside Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland in Frankenmuth.
The suspects are 17-year-old Caleb Quintanilla, 20-year-old Samuel Quintanilla, 19-year-old Ryan Buckler, 21-year-old Nickolas Bright and 20-year-old Branden Dean. All are from Genesee County’s Genesee Township.
The Saginaw News reports District Judge M.T. Thompson on Tuesday ordered the suspects to remain free on the $40,000 bonds they posted last week and appear for a Jan. 14 pre-hearing conference.
Defense attorneys say the five had no prior criminal history.
Bronner’s chief executive Wayne Bronner says damage is estimated at $50,000.
