PAULDING COUNTY, GA (CBS ATLANTA) -
Two Paulding County teenagers have been arrested in connection with vandalism that was found at East Paulding High School on Monday.
Both of the suspects were 16-year-old boys who had previously been suspended from East Paulding High and were currently attending an alternative school.
The teens were arrested by Paulding County School Resource Officers. One fully confessed to the vandalism, and the other denied being involved.
The teens were suspected of tagging about 20 areas of the school early Monday morning, according to a spokesperson with the Paulding County Sheriff's Office.
The tagging happened just months after the school was vandalized in March for a senior prank. In that incident, two dozen people were arrested.
In Monday's case, a sheriff's office spokesperson said the teens targeted the auxiliary gym, several hallways, sidewalks and the outside walls of several buildings. No damage was done to the interior of the school.
The tagging included phrases like "Class of 2015," "Don't do drugs, just smoke weed" and "Illuminati."
School employees were able to quickly remove the graffiti, but the damage was estimated from between $10,000 to $12,000.
Both teens were charged with criminal trespass, curfew violation and felony criminal interference with government property.
One of the teens was allowed to go home with his parents following the arrest, but the other was taken to the Paulding Youth Detention Center because he had been in trouble with the law in the past.
