LINCOLN COUNTY (WSOC) — Seven students from a Lincoln County High School were arrested for a senior prank.
Police said seven students broke into Lincolnton High School early Friday morning. Students told WSOC their plan was to release live chickens inside the halls to greet other students and staff as they arrived for class. Investigators said they set off an alarm at the school, and they were all caught in the act by responding officers.
A juvenile prank has now led to adult charges of breaking and entering and injury to property.
