A suspect has been identified in the vandalism of a veteran's park in Freeport on January 21.

The suspect is a 14-year-old who was interviewed following investigative leads involving a separate incident of criminal mischief.

The juvenile admitted to defacing the statue of three service members where a bronze M16A2 rifle replica was ripped from the figure at Veterans of War Memorial at Freeport City Hall.

On January 21, a resident called Walton County Sheriff's Office after finding the rifle replica in a wooded area on his property.

Deputies visited the park and observed the replica was forcibly removed from a statue located at the rear of the park.

Charges are pending in this case.

WCSO says they will release updates when charges are filed.
