Nenana school aide charged in vandalism case
A 23-year-old residential adviser at an Alaska boarding school has been accused of allowing students to vandalize an abandoned building by spray-painting inside the structure
Reports say Logan M. Monroe has been charged with five counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
He's accused of taking students at Nenana Student Living Center to the AmeriCorps Complex near the Nenana airport.
According to a complaint, Monroe told officials he used a screwdriver to force open a door to what he assumed was an abandoned building.
He told officers that some of the teenagers with him found paint and vandalized the building before he knew it. Students, however, said he did nothing to stop them from spray-painting smiley faces and phrases like "look out."
