Five teens arrested in September Petal High break-in

PETAL, MS (WDAM) - Petal City and School District Police have arrested five people in connection with acts of vandalism last September at the high school.

Police say 18-year-old DeWuan Myers and four juveniles have been arrested on charges of commercial burglary and felony malicious mischief. Petal police say the vandalism resulted in more than $5,800 in damages.

Petal Police Chief Leonard Fuller says the arrests came from several leads gathered by investigators in the months following the break-in.

"We got good information on who the suspects were," said Fuller. "Then we brought each in one at a time and talked to them and got a break in the case that way."

Myers and the four juveniles made their first appearance in court Tuesday afternoon where each of their bonds were set $5000 or $2500 on each charge.
