OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Four suspects accused of causing thousands of dollars in damages to the Blue Valley High School press box have been identified through a unique tip and shoes, according to newly released court documents.
The affidavit for the case against 18-year-old Wade Schemenauer shows that someone contacted Overland Park Police. The person said he was part of a conversation about vandalism and could identify the people responsible.
The document shows that after obtaining the informant’s names, the officers reviewed the surveillance footage. The video showed several people entering the football ground’s press box on the night of the vandalism.
A school resource officer identified one of the suspects in the video based on his shoes and mannerisms, according to the affidavit.
The affidavit also shows police questioned the teenager who admitted to raiding the press room. The document shows that the teenager is a former football player and knew the code to unlock the press box.
Court documents show the teen identified two minors and 18-year-old Wade Schemenauer as the other teens involved in the vandalism.
All four suspects are charged in the case. FOX4 does not name the other three teenagers because they are underage charges in the case.
The school district says the vandalism caused thousands of dollars in damage to the school’s press box on the football field.
