Someone I know had their home broken into while they were out of town for the holidays. Young kids are suspected. Nothing was stolen, they took a BB gun and shot up EVERYTHING, tumped over cabinets and book shelves, emptied dressers, then they flooded the house by letting water run in a stopped up tub. Damage is going to be at least $30,000, probably $45,000 by the time all is said and done. Clean up efforts in the first 24 hrs were up to $8,000.
Are the parents responsible for this? IF the turd(s) is found....... Will the insurance company put a judgement against the parents for the damage?
I think I would be arrested a.) if I had a kid and b.) my kid did this. The reason: I would beat the $%&* out of it, the kid that is.
