Eight Elba High School students have been charged with third-degree burglary in connection with a May 8 incident in which the school was heavily vandalized.

Michael K. Lindsey, 18; Antonio D. Hill, 18; Sage O. Kelley, 18; and Jquente K. Truitt, 18, were all booked into the Coffee County Jail and later released on $2,500 bond each. The other four students involved were minors.

If convicted, they could face from one to 10 years in prison for the class C felony charge.

When school officials arrived at the school the morning of May 8, they discovered a significant amount of vandalism that caused the school to close until 11:30 a.m. for cleanup.

Damage included the discharge of fire extinguishers and kitchen condiments and minimal flooding to a classroom.

According to the Elba Police Department, the initial cost of clean up was placed at $30,000 and additional expenses are expected to be significant, though undetermined at this time.
