Buffalo, NY (WKBW)- Buffalo Police have arrested two teens in connection with a string of graffiti vandalism in South Buffalo. Police say the teens, ages 17 and 18, vandalized St. Bernard's Church located on South Ogden Street, a CVS Pharmacy on Dingens Street, and the East Clinton Library on Clinton Street late Wednesday Afternoon. A tip helped officers track down the teens this morning. Their names are being withheld, pending the outcome of the investigation. Some St. Bernard Parishioners were disgusted after seeing graffiti on their beloved church.

"It's sickening," said Parishioner Nate Borowicz. "It's really is a shame. It's a nice neighborhood, I don't know where these kids come from."

The teens are charged with criminal mischief, making graffiti, and possessing graffiti instruments. The pair could face more charges if they're linked to other graffiti cases in the area.
