Teen suspects in Dimond High vandalism spree on emergency suspension

Posted: Tuesday, January 08, 2002

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Two Anchorage teens are on emergency suspension after being charged with causing more than $100,000 in damage to the new Dimond High School, currently under construction.

The two teens, whose names have not been released, were arrested and charged a few days after the Dec. 30 vandalism spree. Police said the two boys spent more than three hours smashing windows and destroying expensive equipment.

Anchorage School Superintendent Carol Comeau said Monday that both boys have been banned from school grounds until the district decides on a longer-term punishment.

Comeau said two teens arrested over the weekend for trying to steal computer equipment from Service High also have been placed on emergency short-term suspension.
