Albany -- All four of the Dougherty County public high schools were vandalized with spray paint overnight. School officials have offered a reward for information leading to the vandals, and plan to charge them criminally when they identify them.

Dougherty High School has the most damage. Most of it saying "Seniors 06" or "M.H.S."

One of the school principals said he is sure it was a senior prank, by students who are scheduled to graduate next week. But Investigators say the schools take this seriously, and are studying video surveillance tape to see if they can identify the vandals.

At 10:15 last night cameras caught at least three cars pulling up to the granite sign at Westover High School. One of them a silver Dodge Stratus.

At 11:20 Monroe High School cameras catch what Investigators think are the same cars pulling up with their lights off, and that same Stratus.

"These kids. They are doing this as a prank, but they are not thinking about the detrimental side of it. That they could be charged criminally," said Dougherty Co School Police Asst. Chief Steve Mitchum.

Schools announced to their students today that there is a reward leading to information about the vandals. There has not been a damage estimate put together by the schools, because they are still working to clean it up.
