Kansas Juvenile Correctional Complex vandalized by inmates

Posted: Updated:

A group of teens have vandalized property at the Kansas Juvenile Correctional Complex (KJCC).

A news release from the Kansas Department of Corrections said that ten juvenile males between the ages of 17-19-years-old, caused a "disturbance" that resulted in property damage to three of the living units at the facility which is located in Topeka.

Investigators have not determined the exact amount of property damage that was caused or the reason for the incident.

“This isn’t normal for our facility, the fact that no injuries occurred is a credit to the professionalism and response of our staff,” said Randy Bowman, Deputy Secretary of Juvenile Services.

The KJCC has a population of 167 and is the state's only juvenile correctional facility.
