CHURCH HILL, Tenn. (WJHL) — Four people are facing charges after police say they broke into and vandalized Church Hill Middle School.
According to Church Hill police, four males entered the school last Friday night and spray-painted graffiti on the walls and doors. A police report states the graffiti included “profanity, satanic symbols, along with racial slurs and symbols.”
The damage is estimated to be more than $1,000.
Church Hill police arrested Hunter Ethan Rimer, 19; Tyler Ray Phillips, 18; Trevor Mackenzie Golden, 22; and Aiden Cole DuBois, 18. All are from Church Hill.
“Their motive was that it was Friday night and they were bored and just wanted to something, and the thrill of it and that led to this,” Church Hill Police Department Detective Kevin Grigsby told News Channel 11.
All four suspects were charged with burglary and vandalism over $1,000.
Grigsby said that there is no danger from these suspects to the public anymore, but warned that there will always be troublemakers.
