Orangetown Police arrested two Pearl River High School students Tuesday in connection with the vandalism of high school property at approximately 2 a.m. Friday, June 8.
According to a release from the Detective Bureau of the Orangetown Police Department, the students are not being identified at this time because they are eligible for "Youth Offender" status.
The students were charged with Criminal Mischief in the 4th degree, a class A misdemeanor and Criminal Trespass in the third degree, a class B misdemeanor.
Students spray painted graffiti on exterior walls of the high school and damaged playing fields and sports equipment, including hurdles used for track and field and the portable outfield fence on the baseball field.
Pearl River Superintendent of Schools Dr. John Morgano said earlier this week the district will press charges against any students involved.
The investigation is ongoing. The Orangetown Police Detective Bureau is asking any individuals with information regarding the incident to call the bureau at (845) 359-2121.
