Three teens charged with Poolesville High School vandalism

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.
