There men charged with a vandalism spree in a neighborhood in Charlottesville faced a judge Friday morning.

Between June 2nd and 4th, police received reports of multiple vehicles and a home being vandalized in and around the Fry's Spring neighborhood. Car windows were broken and some vehicles had been spray painted with racial slurs.

Shortly after 2 AM on June 4, an officer on patrol witnessed a man hitting a parked vehicle with a baseball bat in the Johnson Village neighborhood. The officer arrested Orbitz and Urrea, while Bush was released without being charged at the time.
