Prince William County police are charging four teenagers with vandalizing an elementary school with racially charged words and symbols.
When teachers and staff arrived at the parking lot of Sinclair Elementary in Manassas this morning they discovered that some sod had been pulled from a pallet and used to write "White Power," "KKK" and to form a swastika.
Police say the suspects appear to have been motivated not from racial hatred but by attention seeking. They represent diverse ethnic backgrounds: some African- American, some white, the boys range in age from 14 to 17. All attend Stonewall Jackson high school.
No students were at Sinclair Elementary School at the time.
