Two teens arrested after Gulf High vandalized

NEW PORT RICHEY — Two boys were arrested Monday after police say they left a trail of destruction at Gulf High School.

The boys, who are not being named by the Times because they are 14 and 16, were caught on surveillance cameras at 7 a.m. May 7. They broke classroom windows, expelled a fire extinguisher in the school and stole an iPod and a laptop, New Port Richey police said.

The 14-year-old is a student at Chasco Middle and the 16-year-old boy is not in school, police said.

Both were charged with criminal mischief, as well as armed burglary, as police said the boys had a pocket knife with them. The 14-year-old was taken to Pasco Juvenile Assessment Center. The 16-year-old, a habitual runaway, was already at the center on previous charges, police said.
