On May 26, 2013, three male juveniles trespassed onto the Silverado High school campus to go swimming. While on campus, they located keys to a scissor lift that was parked in the pool area. They started the scissor lift and drove it into the pool, causing extensive damage to the side and bottom of the pool. The juveniles drove two other scissor lifts to the sports complex where they used them to ram a maintenance building door and concession building door, causing significant damage to both doors. The juveniles also burglarized a sports equipment shed and painted graffiti on numerous buildings throughout the campus. The estimated damage cost could vary from $20,000 to $100,000, depending on the extent of damage to the bottom of the pool, according to a news release.
On Thursday, June 6, 2013 Victorville Detectives served a search warrant at the residence of one of the suspects where they took him into custody and located evidence linking him to the crimes. The 14 year old suspect was arrested on Friday, June 7, 2013 at school. The third suspect (13 year old) is still outstanding, according to the news release.
Both juveniles who were arrested were booked at the High Desert Juvenile Hall on felony charges of PC 594 – Vandalism.
Anyone with additional information regarding these suspects is encouraged to contact Detective Scott Stafford at the Victorville Police Station (760)241-2911 or submit information via the 1 800 WE-TIP hotline.
