Three teens from the Hinckley area have been charged with tagging and damaging playground equipment in the village between September 4th and 8th. Police say the three came forward and confessed.

A news release from the Hinckley Police Department says the three, and their guardians, have been cooperative. The teens have been charged administratively by the Hinckley Police Department's juvenile officer with what's called a station adjustment. If the teens abide by the station adjustment, the case will be closed and there will be no formal charges.

Police are thanking the residents who volunteered to clean up the graffiti at Garfield Park to make it usable by the younger community.
