A 15-year-old Carvers Bay High student was arrested after he reportedly vandalized a bathroom in the school .
The charge was filed Feb. 8 but the incident occurred the previous day. A teacher reported hearing a loud commotion coming from the bathroom near her class and then saw the teen walking down the hallway “acting suspicious,” the report states.
It was discovered some ceiling tiles had been removed and damaged. Metal framiming used to hold up the lights also had to be repaired. The damage cost an estimated at $600 or more.
A video was reviewed and the teen is seen walking out of the bathroom brushing himself off as if he had debris on his clothing.
He admitted to the vandalism, the police report states.
Mom files charges against son
A woman who has been living on Haven Drive in Green Acres Mobile Home Park pressed charges against her 22-year-old son after he reportedly took her gun without her permission.
Deputies met with the woman Feb. 10. She said she was packing to move to Johnsonville when she noticed her gun was missing from a drawer.
She said she had been given the gun by a relative when she moved into the mobile home park.
At about 1:20 a.m., deputies received a tip that the man was at his girlfriend’s residence on Towhee Street.
The homeowner answered the door when officers knocked and allowed them inside.
The man admitted he had the gun and took the deputies to his vehicle and handed them the weapon.
He said he did not think his mom cared if he took the gun so he did not consider it to be a big deal.
When she was informed her son had been located, the woman said she did want to press charges, so the man was charged with having stolen property and was taken to jail.
Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
