5th Suspect Found In Bronner's Vandalism Spree 12-30-2010

A fifth suspect has turned himself in to authorities in a Christmas Day vandalism spree at Bronner's, the popular Christmas-themed store in Mid-Michigan.
Saginaw County Prosecutor Mike Thomas announced charges against the five Genesee County residents connected to the vandalism at Bronner’s.
The charges were destruction of personal property over $20,000, and conspiracy, both felonies with maximum penalties of 10 years in prison and $15,000 in fines.
Charged were Branden Dean, 20, of Mt. Morris; Nickolas Bright, 21, of Mt. Morris; Samuel Quintanilla, 20, of Genessee; Caleb Quintanilla, 17, of Genesee; and Ryan Buchler, 19, of Mt. Morris.
All but Buchler are currently being held at the Saginaw County Jail and will be arraigned Monday.
Judge Terry Clark set bail for each of the five at $40,000. All five have bonded out.
Thomas said the case was solved with the help of citizens in both Saginaw and Genesee counties.
Vandals last Saturday pummeled a life-size Santa and his reindeer, split a nutcracker in half, and smashed and dismembering several other holiday displays at the Bavarian-themed tourist destination in Frankenmuth.
About 75 figures were damaged.
Chief Executive Wayne Bronner told The Associated Press damage was estimated at $50,000.
Police said they still don't know the motive but confirmed the group had been planning the attack since Thanksgiving.
