Teens given probation for school break in and vandalism

Six teenagers who vandalized a school during a break-in last year have been placed on two years’ probation.

The juveniles pleaded guilty to shop breaking, causing damage and stealing, when they appeared before Magistrate Samuel McKinney on Friday.

The children, ages 13 through 15, admitted to breaking into the A.F. Adderley Junior High School between December 27 and December 30, 2019.

The children threw paint on an SUV that the school’s vice principal had left on its grounds, and stole a black HP CPU, valued at $300. They caused $935.91 in damage to appliances by throwing paint on them, and damaged the locks and doors to gain entry.

If the teens violate the terms of their probation, they will be jailed for one year.

They were each ordered to pay $540 — $156 to the school and $384 to the vice principal — in compensation.

They must abide by a 7:30 p.m. daily curfew until they reach the age of 18 and can only leave home past this time if accompanied by their parents.
