Six students charged in tree-cutting senior prank

CALEDONIA, Ohio (AP) — Prosecutors in central Ohio have charged six students with vandalism for allegedly taking a chain saw to two dozen trees outside the school as a senior prank.
The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office said Monday that three of the River Valley High School students were charged with one count each of felony vandalism. Three others were charged with complicity to commit vandalism, also a felony.
Principal Paul Coleman said the students also will face disciplinary action at school, but he didn’t provide details.
Students and administrators arriving at school last Thursday found the 25 trees chopped off at their bases. The district says clearing the felled trees and replacing them will cost thousands.
