Brunswick County Schools spokesman Daniel Seamans said the break-in and vandalism occurred Tuesday night.

Davis is charged with felony breaking and entering, felony larceny after breaking and entering, felony breaking and entering a coin machine, malicious damage to a coin machine, felony possession of burglary tools, and injury to real property.
