TAMPA, Fla. – Hillsborough County sheriff’s deputies arrested three teens suspected of vandalizing Leto High School last week.
Alexander Valladares, 19; Younjer Suarez, 18; and Kevin Narvaez, 18, are charged with burglary damage of more than $1,000 and criminal mischief of $1,000 or more.
Deputies arrested the three teens at their respective homes, the sheriff’s office said.
"I am proud of our detectives whose hard work resulted in the apprehension of these suspects,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister in a news release. “Shame on anyone who would believe that racially disparaging conduct is acceptable in our community where we work so hard to insure equality.”
Surveillance video from Nov. 26 showed three men walking through the campus at 4409 West Sligh Ave.
Graffiti was found on trash cans, concrete walkways, windows, walls, pillars and on the roof of the school.
The estimated damage to the school is $600.
