Deputies seek teens who vandalized schools, bus | News
KERSHAW COUNTY, SC (WIS)- Kershaw County Sheriff's deputies are looking for three teenagers who went on a crime spree over the weekend at two Lugoff-Elgin area schools.
Deputies were dispatched to Lugoff-Elgin Middle School around 6:45 Sunday morning after someone in the area reported hearing glass breaking.
When officers arrived to the school, they saw four shattered windows and damage to a rear double door, according to a sheriff's department incident report.
While searching the area for those responsible, deputies noticed broken windows on an activity bus and a broken window at the high school annex building.
Deputies noted several windows were also broken inside the high school, including damage to a display case.
Surveillance video shows three men walking the grounds of the schools just after 6:00 a.m. One of the men is carrying what deputies believe is a baseball bat.
A few minutes later, one of the teens can be seen smashing a video camera inside the high school.
Video taken at the middle school just six minutes before deputies arrive, shows one of the teens smashing the windows of the activity bus.
Authorities are hoping the release of the surveillance images will lead to the arrest of the people responsible. Investigators say although the faces of the teens are not very clear in the video they hope you may recognize the clothes they're wearing.
If you know anything about this incident or the whereabouts of the teenagers responsible for the vandalism, you are urged to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
