2 teens charged in vandalism at Loveland school



The Cincinnati Enquirer

SYMMES TWP. - Two 15-year-old boys, both freshmen at Loveland High School, have been charged with juvenile felony counts of vandalism and breaking and entering in connection with three break-ins at the school since April 11.

The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office said the school at 11801 Rich Road was first damaged April 11 when a door was pried open. Nothing was missing.

On April 14, there was a break-in and extensive damage to the school, including obscenities spray-painted on walls, ransacked offices, extensive damage and money and property stolen.

School officials estimated damage at $30,000 from that incident.

On May 9, there was minor damage to a school stage during the day.

After an investigation, according to sheriff's spokesman Steve Barnett, the two teens were confronted and admitted responsibility for the three incidents.

The boys had gained access to keys, authorities said.

School officials said locks have since been changed.

The boys were taken to the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Center.
