Region 8 school vandalized twice in one week

SENATH, MO (KAIT) - Senath-Hornersville High School has experienced their second vandalism this week.

Police have been interviewing kids most of the day, and say they have taken two juveniles into custody in connection to the vandalism. 

"They had thrown jelly on the walls and on some of the seniors past pictures," said Dunklin County Sheriff Bob Holder.

The second time the individuals broke into the school, they damaged more than just the hallways.

"There was some damage in the classrooms, six monitors were broken and one computer was broken in the weight room," said Superintendent Larry Wood.

Unfortunately, the list of items destroyed and stolen does not stop there.

"One laptop was broken, an apple computer was broken and a chrome book was taken," said Wood.

In one hallway, several window doors were shattered. The windows were busted into so the students could search in each of the classrooms.

"I imagine there were anywhere from 10 to 12 doors with the windows broken out," said Wood.

A few specific classrooms that were broken into gave the superintendent reason to believe a student must have been involved.

"A couple of the teachers that were sponsoring a fundraiser at the time had their classrooms broken into," said Wood. "That made us believe one of our students may have been involved in it."
