Two arrested in St. Paul's School vandalism

Updated:

Covington, La. - Two teens have been arrested for allegedly vandalizing St. Paul's School in Covington.

A spokesman for the Covington Police Department says the teens were arrested Thursday with the help of information given to Crimestoppers.

The suspects have been identified as 17 year-old Owen Edwards and 18 year-old Norman Hall.

Both subjects were arrested for Criminal Damage to Property over $500, which is a felony.

The school was vandalized sometime overnight on April 27th. Police said graffiti has been painted on religious statues and school buildings.

Within minutes that same day, word spread about the vandalism at the school run by the Christian Brothers.  With the help of dozens of volunteers, the graffiti was quickly cleaned up.

Covington police say most of the graffiti showed up on the chapel, so it could qualify as a hate crime.
