Alleged School Vandals Charged

Police say they burned playground equipment and spray painted graffiti on buildings

FENTON, MO. (KMOX) – Three teens are charged with setting fire to school equipment and painting graffiti on school buildings in Jefferson County.

Police and fire officials first responded earlier this month to a report of playground equipment burning at the Murphy Elementary School on Valley Drive in Fenton.

When they got there, they discovered graffiti on the building and then found spray painted graffiti on two other schools.

Charged with property damage and knowingly burning or exploding are 17 year olds Jacob Gammons and William Bradsher of High Ridge and 18 year old Tanner Marricle of Safford, Arizona.

Their bonds have been set at more than 27-thousand dollars.
