Three teens are in trouble with the law after police say they vandalized a middle school last week. One of them had just graduated from the middle school and lives in the neighborhood.
Beaufort police have obtained juvenile petitions charging the 13, 14 and 15 year olds with having a weapon on school campus, felony breaking and entering and larceny and injury to real property.
Police say ten windows and two doors at Beaufort Middle School were damaged last Thursday. The windows were shot with a BB gun, while the glass in the doors was shattered. A laptop from the school's computer lab was also stolen.
School surveillance cameras caught the teens, with the recent graduate identified. Police were able to ID the other two teens as well.
The school's laptop, valued at $1187, was recovered from a pond near Professional Park Drive, which is behind the school.
