Foot­prints lead to ar­rests in school van­dal­ism

Chattanooga Times Free Press - - OPINION - STAFF AND WIRE RE­PORTS

The Dal­ton Police Depart­ment ar­rested four sus­pects for their roles in a bur­glary and van­dal­ism at Chris­tian Her­itage School.

The sus­pects left the high school hall­ways cov­ered in fire ex­tin­guisher foam, and they also left a trail of foot­prints and dis­carded fire ex­tin­guish­ers for of­fi­cers to fol­low, lead­ing to their ar­rest. All four sus­pects were charged with felony crim­i­nal tres­pass­ing, among other charges.

Smoke alarms went off in the school early Mon­day morn­ing af­ter 3 a.m. Of­fi­cers dis­cov­ered mul­ti­ple sets of foot­prints left in the foam lead­ing out of a back door. The of­fi­cers fol­lowed the trail of foot­prints, dis­carded fire ex­tin­guish­ers and ar­eas where fire ex­tin­guish­ers had been sprayed to the Beech­land Cir­cle area. A trail of foot­prints left in the grass led to the back of a va­cant apart­ment unit at 1600 Un­der­wood St.

Police en­tered the va­cant apart­ment and found four men hid­ing inside a closet. The four ar­restees were Lak­won Mar­quise Flem­ing, 20; Bryson Hunter Gall­man, 20; Kay­lub Kuhn, 18; and Joshua Ryan Brower, 17.
