Four Dixie Hollins seniors arrested on graduation day

ST. PETERSBURG — Four Dixie Hollins High School students were arrested on the school's graduation day after a senior prank went wrong.

Five teens apparently broke into the school about 3:20 a.m. Tuesday. Deputies said they jumped a fence to get in, prompting a neighbor to report a break-in.

When deputies arrived, they found Jaime Shaughessy, 17, and Shalleya Codrington, 18, writing on doors and windows in a breezeway with multicolored markers.

Deputies then went to Codrington's home, where they found Tyler J. Greenberg, 18, Stephanie Sousek, 18, and Andre Szymanski, 17. All five were arrested and charged with burglary.

Shaughessy is a student at MYcroSchool Pinellas. The others are seniors at Dixie Hollins, and some were scheduled to graduate Tuesday, deputies said.

The teens left messages like "Seniors Rule" and "2014," along with lewd pictures of male body parts, on over 200 windows, doors, benches, columns and vending machines in the school, deputies said.

When they interviewed them, deputies said, the teens told them they were seniors who wanted to "go out with a bang."

Codrington, Greenberg and Sousek were transported to the Pinellas County Jail, where they were each held on $10,000 bail. Szymanski and Shaughessy were taken to the Pinellas Juvenile Assessment Center.
