Investigators said those suspected of being involved dumped honey into electrical outlets, printers and other electronic devices. They also littered the building.

“The total cost of necessary repairs or replacements is still being calculated but is expected to be valued at over $20,000. Local parents need to be extra vigilant this time of year and ensure their children are making smart decisions that will keep them from jeopardizing their futures,” Sheriff Eddie Cathey said in a statement, WBTV reported.
