‘Senior Prank’ Leads to Arrest of Two North Carolina Men That Caused Over $20,000 in Damages: Police
Two individuals have been arrested in relation to a vandalism incident that took place as a result of a "senior prank" at a North Carolina high school, authorities said.
According to the Union County Sheriff’s Office, 21-year-old Javier Sheffield, who is not a student, and 18-year-old Nalen Geoffroy, who is a student at Sun Valley High School in Monroe, were arrested and charged.
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.
