HENRICO, Va. (WNEW/AP) — A dozen teenagers face vandalism and trespassing charges following a senior prank at a Henrico County high school.
WTVR in Richmond reports that officials at Varina High School found chocolate sauce, syrup, rice, flour and eggs covering parts of the campus last week. Trash cans were emptied and placed on the roofs of several buildings. The suspects also wrote on doors and walls with permanent marker.
“Words and phrases were written on the sidewalk and signs as well as food items were found covering various walls at the school,” Henrico Police spokesman Lt. Linda Toney said about the mess that was discovered May 27.
Three of the suspects are juveniles. The others are adults.
School officials said the involved students could miss graduation.
“Students involved face severe disciplinary actions including the potential loss of participating in graduation ceremonies,” Henrico Schools spokesman Andy Jenks told WTVR. “That’s in addition to whatever criminal charges may or may not be placed.”
The vandalism caused more than $1,000 in damage.
