Zackary Haiman is the second Southington teen charged in connection with tens of thousands of dollars in damage to new houses.
Southington police have arrested a second local teen accused in vandalism spree in town that caused an estimated $40,000 of damage to new houses and commercial vehicles last year.
In July, police said they linked Jordan Uliasz to the crimes and they expected to charge another person in this case.
On Tuesday, police said they have also taken Zackary Haiman, 19, of Southington, into custody.
Police obtained an arrest warrant on Sept 24 charging Haiman with criminal mischief in the first degree.
On Monday, police found Haiman in Southington and took him into custody. He was transported to the Southington Police Department, where he was processed and held on a $100,000. He is scheduled to appear in Bristol Court on Tuesday.
The arrests are in connection with vandalism discovered in in July 2011, according to police.
Four or five new houses under construction and two construction vehicles on West Pines Drive, a new development of large houses in the suburban community, were damaged.
Graffiti was spray painted inside and outside one house and custom carpentry and granite counter tops were damaged. In other houses, windows were smashed, paint was spilled and holes were made in walls and ceilings.
Police said no further arrests are expected in connection with the house vandalism.
Uliasz was also charged in nighttime burglaries/home invasions in the Curtiss Street area while families were asleep. Police believe Uliasz acted alone in those burglaries.
Uliasz was linked to the vandalism on West Pines Drive through forensic evidence, according to a news release from Southington police.
He is due n court on Oct. 29 on multiple charges.
