WHEELER, Miss. (WTVA) -- Two teenagers have been arrested after an investigation into vandalism and a break-in at Wheeler school.
Prentiss County Sheriff Randy Tolar says the arrests came after a witness gave authorities a description of a vehicle seen leaving the school.
Tolar says the 15 and 16 year old were released to their parents following the arrests.
He says one was a student at the school and the other is a former student.
Tolar says the pair broke into the school building at Wheeler and damaged $1,000's worth of property and stole other items, some of which were later recovered.
They also attempted to get into a safe.
Principal Todd Swinney told WTVA.com on Wednesday drivers found the windshields broken on five buses when they reported to run their routes Wednesday morning.
He says the mirrors had also been knocked off the buses.
The vandalism did not affect bus routes or school operations.
