This Week in Crime: Fox Mill Man Charged in Graffiti Incident at SLHS, Other County Schools

An 18-year-old Fox Mill man and a handful of juveniles have been charged with destruction of property following incidents involving graffiti at South Lakes High School and two other county schools last year.

On Thursday, January 14, police placed charges on one adult and several juveniles for destruction of property involving three Fairfax County public schools. On October 10, 2009, the graffiti was spray painted on property at Westfield High School, located at 4700 Stonecroft Boulevard. On December 4, 2009, graffiti was spray painted at Westfield High School, South Lakes High School, located at 11400 South Lakes Drive, and Fox Mill Elementary School, located at 2601 Viking Drive. The damage for all three schools was totaled at least $10,000.

In late December, school officials and security staff at Westfield High School received information about these incidents that was passed onto the Westfield School Resource Officer. He was able to identify and charge suspects with the assistance of the SRO and security staff at Oakton High School.

[An 18-year-old], a 17-year-old boy, two 16-year-old boys and a 15-year-old boy were all charged with one count of felony destruction of property.
"Sample pictures of the graffiti is available upon request," the news release read. We're guessing it didn't look like a Banksy exhibit.
