Teens Charged In School Arson

Two people have been charged with last month's fire at a former school that was still owned by Wayne County schools.

On April 11th some $500,000 in damage was done to the Belfast School after deputies say two teens broke in and set fire to the gym.

Charged with felony B&E and burning of a school building are Daniel Mooring of Fremont and Joshua Tucker of Goldsboro. Both teens are 16-years-old and their bond was set at $30,000.

The building used to be an old elementary school, but is now used by the W.A.G.E.S. Head Start program.

    Product of Mom's that works full time while kids are growing up and getting into trouble. Bet you! When there is no one home between the hours of 4:00 to 6:30 to monitor kids, statistics PROVE that is when kids get into trouble and learn their bad behavior growing up. It does pay to be stay at home Moms or at least make sure there is someone else monitoring the kids til you get home from work. If not - POLICE WILL.

      First, my wife is a stay at home mom. But a lot of people can't afford that, especially with todays economy. I was a latch-key kid with a single mom. I went to school, got on the bus, went home, did my homework. Even when I had a car I didn't do anything. Not all moms can stay at home. I'm sick of hearing that parents have to watch their kids 24/7. These two "geniuses" are 16 years old. If they haven't learned by that age, there is no hope. My cousin has been in and out of jail and he had both parents, but that didn't stop him and he was disciplined but he just did not give a darn.

      This mom is a stay at home too. In fact, she doesn't work at all and jumps from rental property to rental property with her 5 kids and leaves behind a trail of trash and unpaid rent to landlords. She literally lives in a home without paying rent until she is physically evicted from the property. Not a good example for any of her kids! Children are what we teach them!

    Why not have the bond at $250,000 each

    They ought to be ashamed of themselves. That building was minding it's own business. So, what did they get out of burning it?! Duh!

    Maybe get them to work on only the clean up part, not the building part. Maybe put them to work with trash pick up duty with the county.
