SAN ANTONIO – UPDATE: All three suspects have been arrested. Two 16-year-olds and Mark Anthony Santos, 20, were arrested in connection with the vandalism, according to NEISD police.
ORIGINAL STORY: North East Independent School District police are looking for three males they believe are responsible for vandalizing James Madison High School Monday morning.
Pictures sent to KSAT show a white van covered with purple, pink, blue, white and orange spray paint, including some vulgar drawings.
An inappropriate image was also spray-painted on the school’s pavement and crude remarks were found on a school door. NEISD officials said the vandals caused between $1,500 and $3,000 in damage.
Three unknown male suspects were caught on video on school property at approximately 2 a.m.
"This is so disappointing. It’s such a shame that people would destroy and deface property like this. But our students and parents have been so wonderful. They have really stepped up and volunteered to assist with the cleanup," a spokesperson with NEISD said.
Surveillance footage shows the faces of the suspects, and the NEISD police are asking anyone who might have information to call 210-407-0911.
"It looks like when you see the video that the suspects had some level of familiarity with what they were doing .. they kind of knew where the security cameras were.. it looks they had a golf club and were trying to destroy some of the security cameras," said NEISD spokeswoman Aubrey Chancellor.
Chancellor said that two of the suspects are 16-year-old former students.
They face charges of graffiti and criminal mischief.
