COVINGTON, LA (NBC33) — Two teens were arrested for allegedly spray painting satanic and Nazi symbols all over the campus of a Covington Catholic school.
The Covington Police Department arrested Carter Norman Hall, 18 and Owen Edwards, 17, for the crime that was reported on Saturday, April 27 by St. Paul’s Catholic School.
Officers noted various painted text stating “Hail Satan 666,” numerous swastikas, and the world “Hitler” spelled out on the supports of the bell tower. Some of the statues located throughout the campus were also found to have the Star of David painted on them, while others had “obscene” drawings.
After offering a reward of $1,000 for information, tipsters pointed police in the direction of the two suspects.
Officials say more than 100 members of the community have donated their time to remove the symbols from the school ground.
