HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Five teenagers, including two current students, face multiple charges following recent vandalism at Varina High School and John Rolfe Middle School.

According to Henrico Police, in the pre-dawn hours of June 3, three males and two females entered school property and threw eggs at one or both buildings. Police say the individuals were caught on school surveillance video. School resource officers later identified two of the alleged offenders, which led investigators to locate the other three, who were arrested Tuesday afternoon according to police. 

Henrico Police charged the following individuals:

  • James T. Garlick, 19, a current student of Highland Springs High School
  • Souphansa L. Xayachak, 18, a current student of Highland Springs High School
  • Darian S. Brown, 19
  • Abeni O. Page, 19
  • Anthony L. Cypress, 19

Police say the individuals face multiple charges of trespassing and vandalism, which are Class 1 misdemeanors, punishable by up to 12 months in jail and/or a fine of up to $2,500. School administrators may consider further penalties.

In a statement, HCPS spokesperson Mychael Dickerson said, "We are pleased that Henrico County Police continued to investigate and was able to make arrests in the vandalism incidents at Varina High and Rolfe Middle Schools.  We take these crimes seriously and will continue to work with authorities to prosecute these cases to the fullest extent of the law.  We are just two days from the last day of school and hope that students and the community will work with us to have a positive end to the school year."
