A special meeting of the Hewitt City Council was called on June 13 to discuss the recent vandalism of the Hewitt Museum and the punishment of the vandals.
On the evening of May 16, around 4:30 p.m., three kids ages 12, 13 and 14—one male and two females—were caught breaking into the Hewitt Museum.
The kids gained entry through the fire escape on the second floor, on the back side of the museum. They used a screwdriver to pry their way through the secured door.
Once inside, they set off a fire extinguisher that coated the top floor and parts of the main floor in powder. . .
