Two Charged in Criminal Mischief Investigation

Since January 2022, the City of Carmel and local businesses in and around the Midtown Carmel area have experienced a significant increase in vandalism and loitering in the public areas and parking garages. The Carmel Police Department has consistently taken multiple reports of this nature every week during this time frame, and it’s estimated that approximately $14,000 worth of damage has occurred as a result of these incidents. In response to this issue, Carmel Police have increased patrols in this area and have been aggressively enforcing both ordinance and criminal violations.

In the early morning hours of Saturday March 5, 2022, through the use of city surveillance cameras in the area, officers observed three individuals enter a public restroom in the area of Elm Street and Veterans Way. Officers responded to the area, made contact with the individuals and, upon investigation, discovered fresh damage inside the public restroom. As a result of this investigation, a report was generated and criminal charges were submitted to the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office for consideration. On March 10, 2022, 19-year-old David Alejandro Foddrill of Indianapolis and 19-year-old Isiah Dewey Jacob Curtis of Indianapolis, were both charged with Criminal Mischief, a Class B Misdemeanor.

The Carmel Police Department continues to patrol these areas in an effort to prevent damage to our public spaces and ensure a pleasant experience to all those that work and socialize in these areas. If you have any information regarding this incident or other similar incidents that have occurred, please contact the Carmel Police Department at 317-571-2500 or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477 (TIPS).
