Vandals hit Mitchell High School, four teens arrested

TRINITY — Four suspects were arrested this week in connection with a vandalism case at J.W. Mitchell High School.

On Friday, trees and a building on campus were doused with paint. Nails scattered in the school parking lot damaged students' and faculty members' cars. Cigarillo wrappers hung from the roof.

A school resource officer arrested the four suspected vandals on Tuesday and Wednesday. Two are students at Mitchell. One is a student at Anclote High School. The fourth is a former Mitchell High student who was removed from the school last year, the officer said.

Three will be charged with misdemeanor trespassing. The Pasco County Sheriff's Office did not release their names because they are juveniles. The fourth suspect, arrested Wednesday, is expected to be charged with felony vandalism, officials said.

The damage to the school has since been repaired.
