ROCKLAND — Rockland Police have charged several youths in the past few weeks for a series of crimes.

On Saturday, July 16, Rockland Police responded to a report of two individuals wearing ski masks and using a baseball bat to destroy a vehicle in Rockland’s South End. After several weeks of investigation, two juvenile teens were charged with felony aggravated criminal mischief.

On Wednesday, Aug. 3, police made contact with 18-year-old Khyllie A. Cochran on Pleasant Street in Rockland. Cochran was issued a summons for criminal mischief in connection to a Sunday, July 31 incident that occurred in the Rockland Police Department parking lot, according to police. An affidavit filed in court states when Cochran saw the cruiser she made a “shooting gun gesture” toward the cruiser.

While issuing the summons to Cochran for the July 31 incident, Rockland Police spotted a juvenile teen wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant for multiple charges. When officers attempted to take the teen into custody, another juvenile teen and Cochran physically interfered with the arrest.

The juvenile teen was arrested on the warrant.

Cochran was arrested for obstructing government administration and violation of conditions of release. She was already free on bail following her being charged in connection to a Wednesday, July 13, incident in which windows were broken at Oceanside High School and hate graffiti, including a swastika, were painted on out buildings at the school. A second teen was also charged with that vandalism spree.

Cochran was taken to the Knox County Jail in Rockland. The District Attorney’s Office later added additional charges of refusing to submit to arrest and assault against Cochran. She made her initial court appearance Friday, Aug. 5, in the Knox County court.

The second juvenile teen who interfered with the Wednesday, Aug. 3, arrest was later issued a summons for obstructing government administration.
