Criminal Charges Pending In Prank At Massena SchoolPosted: Updated:
Officials anticipate criminal charges will be filed against the students who took part in an alleged senior prank at Massena Central School.
District Superintendent Patrick Brady told 7 News that a group of students broke into the school late last Wednesday night and vandalized parts of the building.
He declined to disclose the type of vandalism, but said the custodial staff had to be called in to clean up the mess early Thursday morning.
"We're very concerned and disappointed with the conduct of the students who broke into the school," Brady said.
According to Brady, the school anticipated some kind of prank and asked the village police department to keep an eye on the school. He said police were on the scene so quickly that they were able to stop additional vandalism from happening.
Brady said he anticipates the students who were involved will face criminal charges and school disciplinary action.
He said the school has a surveillance system.
Massena Police Chief Adam Love said his department is investigating the incident, but no charges have been filed at this time.
