TRINITY, N.C. — Two people have been charged in connection with the vandalism of four school buses at a Trinity elementary school last week.

Chad Allen Price, 19, of Trinity, was arrested, and a juvenile petition will be sought against another suspect, Randolph County deputies said.

Deputies received a report April 24 that four school buses at Hopewell Elementary School were damaged by what appeared to be a BB gun or an air rifle.

Several windows had been damaged, as well as taillights. Damage was estimated at $1,400, deputies said.

Price was held under a $3,500 secured bond.
