Juveniles arrested in vandalism case

CINCINNATI, Ohio (FOX19) - Officials with Reading Community Schools say police have told them juveniles have been arrested in recent break-ins at the middle and high schools on Bonnell Avenue.

Those incidents took place about two weeks ago.

“They spray-painted a lot of walls in both the high school and middle school, they took a bunch of keys from desks and offices and stole two cameras and a computer," said Chuck LaFata, Superintendent of Reading Community Schools. “The police told us that the spray paint graphics or graffiti that they sprayed painted in the school is very similar to some graffiti that had been sprayed around Reading."

Locks around this building have been changed since this happened.
