Three juveniles accused of $50,000 worth of damage to Prairieville High

PRAIRIEVILLE — Sheriff’s deputies said three juveniles have been arrested for allegedly causing over $50,000 in damage to Prairieville High School, which is soon to open.

The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office say that there were approximately 30 shattered glass windows and graffiti spray painted on several walls at the high school construction site on Parker Rd.

Deputies say three juveniles admitted to the damages, and that they were booked into a nearby detention center for felony criminal damage to property and misdemeanor criminal trespassing.

“Vandalism of our schools or any public facility will absolutely not be tolerated,” Sheriff Bobby Webre said. “These matters will be investigated to the fullest extent, and the sheriff’s office will do all in can to solve these deplorable acts.”

Ascension Parish Schools said that school administrators are working with contractors and law enforcement.

“We are committed to holding those responsible accountable for their actions and ensuring that appropriate legal measures are taken,”  Superintendent Dr. Edith Walker said.

Prairieville High is set to open in the fall.
