Two students at Riverside Brookfield High School have been charged with felony criminal damage to state-supported property after T.P.ing and shaving cream pranks escalated before last week’s homecoming game.
Of the more than 100 students involved in the prank, Frad C. Johnson, 18 and Rual A. Garcia, 17, both of Riverside, are accused of doing permanent damage to the school and are charged as adults, according to Riverside Police.
In a written statement, the Riverside Police Department said, “Upon closer inspection, officers observed that the school had been spray painted. Additionally, four live chickens were left in a child’s crib at the doors on Ridgewood Road, spray painting was done on individual trees, and the school building and sidewalk. Several pieces of furniture were left at the old front entrance on Ridgewood Road including couches and mattresses. Door locks were damaged with expanding foam and there were pornographic pictures that were left either on doors or nailed to trees. These pictures depicted internet pornography which had some handwritten notations on the photos referring to staff members at Riverside Brookfield High School.”
Video surveillance footage played a role in charging Johnson and Garcia, according to police.
