Two Pitcairn men are accused of breaking car windows on Halloween in 2012 at a Monroeville business.

Christopher Hicks, 21, of Eleanor Street and Joshua Ray, 22, of Third Street were charged by Monroeville police with criminal mischief and criminal conspiracy in connection with the incident at Compunetix on Mosside Boulevard.

Employees left work at about 5 a.m. on Oct. 31, 2012, and found their car windows smashed and the paint scratched.

The company estimated about $5,000 worth of damage to company property and 19 employee vehicles, according to the complaint.

During a police interview, Hicks told investigators that he and Ray committed the crime, according to the criminal complaint. An Oct. 21 preliminary hearing is scheduled for Hicks and Ray.

Neither defendant was represented by an attorney as of Tuesday, according to court records.

Founded in 1968, Compunetix is an electronics manufacturer that distributes its products worldwide.

Its customers include NASA, Verizon and Sprint.
