Former Disney Channel actress Bridget Shergalis and left-leaning activist Calla Walsh were arrested for allegedly vandalizing an Israeli company's office in New Hampshire. 

According to local reports, the two women were arrested last week during a protest in Merrimack, New Hampshire, where they allegedly vandalized an international defense electronics company, Elbit Systems. The headquarters of the company is based in Israel. 

They have both been charged with riot, sabotage, criminal mischief, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.

Merrimack police say that the protesters, who were speaking out in support of Palestine, blocked an entrance to the company, making it so people couldn't get in. 

Police later discovered that some windows of the building were smashed and parts had been spray painted. 

There is currently an ongoing investigation into the incident that the FBI is helping with. 

Walsh, a self-described "communist," is well known for her left-leaning activism and has met with politicians such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Shergalis has appeared in Disney Channel shows such as Liv and Maddie and So Random!
