ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The Anchorage office of a nonprofit organization has been heavily damaged by vandalism and a 17-year-old boy is in custody in connection with the crime.

The Anchorage Daily News (https://is.gd/W9pt7M) says the Fireweed Lane office of the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Alaska was broken into on Sunday morning.

Police say the office was smeared with blood, soaked with water and strewn with shattered window glass and broken equipment.

Police say the suspect was found within an hour of the initial report and he has been charged with felony counts of criminal mischief and burglary. His name has not been released because he is a minor.

Kristin George, the organization’s board president, says five computer monitors also were destroyed, as well as phones and a printer, artwork and medical supplies.
