Arrest made in school damage case

N ew York State Police have charged a Cambridge Central School student with third-degree criminal mischief for allegedly damaging a Whitehall Central School classroom Feb. 5.

Joshua R. Peabody, 17, was arrested Feb. 9 and appeared in Whitehall Town Court. He was released pending another appearance.

Peabody is alleged to have done the damage during the Section II, Class D wrestling tournament, which Whitehall hosted.

Each of the 11 visiting schools was allowed to use a classroom as a team room for the day, and police and school officials said Peabody damaged a number of items in the room his team was using.

The school is seeking restitution of slightly more than $1,000.
