Three Park City High School males arrested for vandalism

Three Park City High School seniors were arrested earlier today for causing about $8,000 worth of damages at the school on June 5. According to Park City Police Department Captain Phil Kirk, after reviewing surveillance tapes and following several leads, PCPD School Resource Officer Ed Clouse arrested the suspects.

Two of the students arrested are 18 and were taken to the Summit County Jail. A $10,000 bail was posted for each student shortly after. The 17-year-old will go through the Juvenile court process.

According to Park City School Board President Moe Hickey, a rug was bleached with an obscene gesture and pornography plastered on the walls around the school. Surveillance tapes showed the students entering the building wearing masks.

"It’s unfortunate. I certainly don’t look at something like that as a prank. That was certainly with full intention to vandalize," Hickey said. "They wore masks coming up to the building and in the building. It was premeditated."

Kirk said the high school can also press charges and enforce disciplinary action.
