Christmas display vandals come forward
Two suspects caught on camera destroying a Lake Grove holiday display came forward Thursday.
Surveillance video showed two men armed with axes hacking the inflatables at a home on Sycamore Avenue early Wednesday morning.
The homeowner, Danielle Vasile, tells News 12 she spoke with the parents of the two young men responsible and that they agreed to pay for the damage.
She says the parents paid restitution, and that the money will be donated to two animal rescue organizations.
"The family was mortified, they were embarrassed," Vasile says. "They stood by any decision we made. We are not looking ruin anyone's life."
Vasile says she will not be pressing charges.
