March 15-- Five students at Vidalia High School have been arrested in connection with vandalism at the school Sunday night which shut down the school for clean-up Monday.
Vidalia Police Lieutenant Jimmy Sims says the students entered the building through an open window and stayed in the building for about an hour. During that period, they smeared the hallways with flour, eggs, ketchup and oil. Asked about their motivation, Lieutenant Sims described it as "a high school prank gone bad."
The five were booked at the Toombs County Detention Center on a felony charge of criminal interference with government property and an aggravated misdemeanor charge of disruption or interference with a public school.
Police identify those arrested as males Nikilas Fussell and Jamontay Patrick, both age 17; and 18-year-olds Daquan Dupree and Joshua Denzel Brown; and the lone female, 18-year-old Venkencia Johnson.
