At least three of the four girls involved in a scheme to squirt super glue into the door locks at Greenbrier High School have paid restitution, said a Columbia County school board member.
School trustee Mike Sleeper said in a text message last week that three of the girls paid their share of the more than $5,000 cost to repair the locks. He was unsure who had paid restitution or if the fourth teen had yet contributed.
As a prank last month, four Greenbrier High seniors – Brooklyn Leigh Bella, 17; Elizabeth Sutton Metz, 17; Dynisha Antoinette Clemons, 17; and Kristin Arey Tannehill, 18 – squirted super glue into more than 40 locks at the school. Each were arrested soon after by the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office and charged with second-degree criminal damage to property.
School officials punished the teens by banning them from the Greenbrier graduation ceremony. They also demanded the girls pay the cost to fix the locks before giving them their diplomas or releasing to them their grades from the second semester of school.
District Attorney Ashley Wright said last month in an email that her office has the complete case file from the sheriff’s office and will be working on a presentation to a grand jury.
