COLUMBIA COUNTY, Ga. -- The superintendent of Columbia County Schools says the four students accused of gluing locks on school doors will not be participating in graduation ceremonies.
Superintendent Charles Nagle said the girls will forfeit all exam exemptions and will be forced to pay restitution before they can receive their diplomas.
The students allegedly put glue in 43 exterior door locks, causing $5,130 in damage.
The Greenbrier principal says this was the most expensive prank the district has probably even seen.
Elizabeth Metz, Dynisha Clemons, Kristin Tannehill and Brooklyn Bella are charged with second-degree criminal damage to property, which is a felony. Tannehill was not at the scene but is said to have been actively involved in the planning, including being there when the glue was purchased.
More arrests are likely to come in connection to the prank.
