COLUMBIA — Columbia police arrested three Hickman High School seniors Wednesday, each on one count of felony property damage, in connection with a vandalism case at Rock Bridge High School, according to a press release issued by the Columbia Police Department.

Elias E. Black, Joshua D. Kostal and Cameron J. Phillips, all 18, were being held on $4,500 bond after being taken into custody at the high school, according to the release.

Police said in the release that officers found white spray paint on grandstand billboards, the press box, track, football fields and softball fields at Rock Bridge on Nov. 12. The property damage totaled around $6,000, according to the release.

Police said the investigating officer determined that three white males bought six cans of spray paint at 3:30 a.m. on Nov. 12 at the Walmart at 1201 Grindstone Parkway. According to the release, the officer was later able to identify the three arrested teenagers from surveillance footage taken at the store.

All three admitted to the vandalism, according to the release.
