FHS prank has consequences

By Staff

What started out as a student prank at Falkville High School has quickly mushroomed into a criminal act with serious consequences for its perpetrators.
Principal Sue Wood said several seniors as well as others who have no connection with the school have been identified as those responsible for breaking and entering and vandalizing the main school building on May 11. Punishment for the students was determined on May 17. They must make financial restitution to cover the cost of cleanup and repairs, perform work hours at the school and won't be allowed to participate in the school's graduation exercise. No criminal charges will be pressed providing they complete their punishment within 90 days.
Subject to the acts of the vandals were the main hallway of the school building and several classrooms. Three chickens and 2000 crickets were turned loose, walls were rolled with wet toilet paper, carpeted floors were covered with corn starch, pet litter and water, wall lockers were marked with crayon chalk and two garbage cans filled with garbage and water were placed inside the front entrance doors.
Wood said the students fixed a door and several windows so that they appeared to be locked but weren't and used them to get inside the building.
