Vandals cause extensive damage to NW Pa. school

YOUNGVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Three men have been charged with vandalizing their former high school and causing at least $50,000 in damage, a figure that’s expected to rise as officials tally the damage.

State police Trooper Todd Koebley says the suspects broke into Youngsville High School early Sunday and emptied several fire extinguishers in the gymnasium, cafeteria, computer lab, hallways and principal’s office. Police say they also spray-painted crude pictures and the years they graduated on refrigerators, lockers, computer screens, chalkboards, doors, tables and walls.

The Erie Times-News (http://bit.ly/11JCPr8 ) reports that 19-year-old Duston Miller of Youngsville, 18-year-old Taylor Keys of Grand Valley and 20-year-old Derek Gifford of Greensburg face 11 felony counts each. They’re in Warren County Jail.

Valid phone listings for the suspects could not be located Tuesday and it’s unclear if they have attorneys.
