Authorities say three high school students who were jailed earlier this week for vandalizing classroom huts and school buses, are facing additional charges.

On Wednesday, the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office said the trio broke into seven portable classrooms and seven school buses parked at their school - Walter Spivey School. Windows were broken, fire extinguishers discharged and electronic equipment destroyed.

Now, investigators say the teens are also charged with breaking into Massey Hill Classical High School on Southern Avenue and Howard Health and Science School on Camden Road.

They say the windows were knocked out in the cafeteria at Massey Hill and the door windows were broken at Howard Science School. In both instances, investigators say the burglar alarms scared the suspects away.

Sixteen-year-old Drew Paris Love of Center Street, 16-year old Kalisha Dionne Sykes of Old Wilmington Road and 16-year old Peter Denning of Orlando Street, Fayetteville are charged with multiple counts of felonious breaking and entering, injury to personal property, breaking and entering of a motor vehicle and misdemeanor injury to real property.

Love, Sykes and Denning were being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center under a $450,000 bond.
