STAMFORD, Conn. -- Three teenagers are facing charges after they vandalized water sprinklers at about 3:30 a.m. Monday in Stamford's South End, police said.

A security guard called police after three males were seen jumping on the sprinklers. The three 19-year-olds fled when they saw the security guard, police said. Officers arrived and used the police dog "Bobbi" to help in the search, police said. 

The dog discovered James Anthony Manganiello, 19, of Greenwich in the rear of a home in the 100 block of Washington Boulevard. He said he was with two friends and they starting stomping on sprinkler heads for kicks, police said.

Jack Conor Burke, 19, of Stamford and David Franklin Roberts, 19, of Greenwich were arrested shortly afterward, police said.

Burke and Roberts each are facing charges of interfering with an officer, third-degree criminal trespass and third-degree criminal mischief. Bond was set at $1,000 for each man.

Manganiello was charged with third-degree mischief. His bond was set at $500.

Their court date is Aug. 29 at Superior Court in Stamford.
