5 Arraigned In Bronner's Christmas Store Attack 1-04-2011

A 17-year-old boy and four young men have been arraigned on felony charges over a Christmas Day vandalism spree at a popular Christmas-themed store in mid-Michigan.
The five are charged with malicious destruction of property and conspiracy in connection with the damage to 75 displays outside Bronner's Christmas Wonderland in Frankenmuth.
The suspects are 17-year-old Caleb Quintanilla, 20-year-old Samuel Quintanilla, 19-year-old Ryan Buckler, 21-year-old Nickolas Bright and 20-year-old Branden Dean. All are from Genesee County's Genesee Township.
The Saginaw News reported District Judge M.T. Thompson on Tuesday ordered the suspects to remain free on the $40,000 bonds they posted last week and appear for a Jan. 14 pre-hearing conference.
Defense attorneys say the five have no prior criminal history.
Bronner's chief executive, Wayne Bronner, says damage is estimated at $50,000.
A hearing was scheduled for Monday but was delayed because the men’s lawyers were unavailable.
The vandalism occurred Christmas Day, between 1 and 8 a.m.
Each face two felony charges of malicious destruction of property over $20,000 and conspiracy, with maximum penalties of 10 years in prison and $15,000 in fines.
In all, about 75 figures were damaged.
