Lee County investigators
could not release pictures of the graffiti to us, but our viewers emailed us
plenty of the pictures taken at Smith Station High School back in April the
graffiti references smoking pot and sexual acts.
Deputies say two Smith
Station High School students, identified as 18-year-old Brent Whittis and 19-year-old
Deon Davis, certainly left their mark on their school.
Surveillance video helped
identify the teens and search warrants at their homes led investigators to more
than just spray paint.
"As a result of two search
warrants, one at each resident's, we recovered stolen property that belonged to
at least 7 residential burglaries," said Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones. "We are
looking at a fire arm, jewelry, electronics, game stations, a lap top
computers, a tablet computer, some historic coins and antique coins....things
of that nature."
Whittis and Davis were
pulled out of class and arrested at their high school this week. The two teens
bonded out of jail Wednesday night.
Sheriff Jay Jones says the
school board will decide how the teens will be disciplined at school as they
await their court dates.
