A pair of juveniles were arrested at schools in the county in separate incidents Monday. 

According to a release from the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office, on Monday morning, the DeKalb County Sheriff’s School Resource Officer was called to a possible burglary at Fyffe School. 

When the SRO arrived at the school, he found a window to a classroom to be broken into and several classrooms had been vandalized, according to the release. 

The release said several of the rooms had graffiti on their boards, as well. Security cameras at the school caught the juvenile that DCSO believes did the vandalism. The juvenile was arrested on Nov. 14 and referred to the Juvenile Probation Office, the release says. 

Also on Monday at Crossville Middle School, a juvenile was arrested when they brought a BB pistol into a classroom. 

At the time, the principal and SRO were contacted and the juvenile was detained and transported to Coosa Valley Detention Center, the release said. 

The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office has been working closely on both incidents with Superintendent Jason Barnett. 

Chief Deputy Michael Edmondson said his deputies work hard to make sure our students are safe. 

“We take these kinds of incidents very seriously, especially with what is happening in schools and places around the world,” he said. “Our children are precious and we do everything that we can to protect them.”
