Three male teenagers have been charged with vandalization at Poolesville High School, police said Friday.
Montgomery County police arrested the three Thursday, charging them with second-degree burglary and destruction of property. The allegedly spray-painted ethnic slurs and symbols such as "KKK" and a swastika on school property, police said.
A John Deere "Gator" utility vehicle was stolen from a locked storage building at the school, according to police.
A Poolesville High employee called police around 6 a.m. Monday morning to report the crimes, police said.
The teens were identified as a 14-year-old male from Germantown, a 16-year-old male from Dickerson, and a 16-year-old male from Poolesville. All three have been released to their parents.
