Teenagers arrested for vandalism at Fort Revere in Hull

HULL, MA (WHDH) - Police in Hull have arrested and charged seven people, including adults and minors, with vandalism on Friday. The arrest is part of the department’s efforts to curb vandalism and graffiti at the historic, 200-year-old Fort Revere.

A Hull police officer was patrolling Fort Revere early Friday morning when she noticed the graffiti, which contained vulgar, sexual and racist language. The officer found a group of teenagers at the site, who had spray paint on their hands and bottles of spray paint on them.

Samantha Foley, 18 of Marshfield, was charged with underage possession of alcohol, tagging, malicious destruction of property over $250 and trespassing.

Alexis Osborne, 18 of Marshfield, was charged with tagging, malicious destruction of property over $250 and trespassing.

Keri Mulvehill, 18 of Marshfield, was charged with tagging, malicious destruction of property over $250 and trespassing.

Julia Kolar, 18 of Marshfield, was charged with tagging, malicious destruction of property over $250 and trespassing.

A 17-year-old boy and girl from Marshfield were both charged with tagging, malicious destruction of property over $250 and trespassing. A 17-year-old boy from Braintree was also charged with tagging, malicious destruction of property over $250 and trespassing.

Hull officials and the Department of Conservation and recreation funded a repainting of Fort Revere in June. Massachusetts State Police have also made multiple arrests over the last couple of weeks for vandalism and trespassing.

The seven teenagers in group have been released on personal recognizance and will be arraigned at Hingham District Court next week.
