Investigators Closing In

Coffee County investigators expect to make nearly two-dozen arrests in connection with vandalism at Zion Chapel School.

Eleven adults between the ages of 18 and 20, along with eight 14 and 15-year-olds can expect to face criminal mischief, trespassing and burglary charges.

This followed a weekend spree of vandalism at the school where classrooms were ransacked, the football field damaged and paint from paintball guns was sprayed on school buses parked outside.

Damage is estimated at $3,000, but investigators say the truck on the football field also destroyed the underground sprinkler system, which could cost thousands more.
