COLUMBIA COUNTY, Ga. -- A fifth suspect has been charged in connection to a school prank at Greenbrier High School.
The 15-year-old male lives in Evans. Officials are not releasing his name because he's a minor and doesn't have a criminal history.
The students allegedly put glue in 43 exterior door locks, causing $5,130 in damage.
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.
Superintendent Charles Nagle said the girls will forfeit all exam exemptions and will be forced to pay restitution before they can receive their diplomas. They also will not be participating in graduation ceremonies.
The Greenbrier principal says this was the most expensive prank the district has probably even seen.
