7 teens charged with burglary, vandalism at EHHS


“Seven (7) teenagers face charges following a break-in at East Hall High School (EHHS) last week.

A Hall County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) school resource officer (SRO) discovered the damage at the school when he arrived on the property around 5 a.m. Friday, March 15. Initially, the SRO observed toilet paper in some of the trees at the school. He then found caution tape and toilet paper wrapped around railings and outdoor tables in the quad area outside the cafeteria. Green de-icing salt had also been poured on the steps near the cafeteria. Egg residue was found on some exterior parts of the building, including windows.

Further investigation found the suspects entered the school through an outside back door of the gymnasium weight room. De-icing salt had been poured in an area outside the gym. In addition, the SRO found eggs and egg shells inside three vending machines on another floor. Eggs had also been thrown at the door to the assistant principal’s office.

School administrators used security camera footage to determine the break-in occurred just after 12 a.m. Friday. They were also able to identify the suspects and track their actions with the video footage. The following suspects were arrested and charged with second degree burglary and criminal damage to property:

·         Jacob Daniel Christian, 17, Lula

·         Hunter Michael Carr, 18, Gillsville

·         Cason McBryan Cash, 18, Gainesville

·         Delsin Nucoma Grindle, 18, Gainesville

·         Azyon Esias Morrison, 17, Gainesville

·         Temeris Zyair Morrison, 18, Gainesville

·         Kaleb Trenton Reeves, 18, Gainesville

All of the suspects – with the exception of Temeris Morrison – are students at East Hall High School. Temeris Morrison is a former EHHS student. All seven have been released from jail on bond.

Hall County School District officials have not yet released a total damage amount sustained during the incident.”
