A teen dressed as horror movie character Jason Voorhees, along with two others, allegedly vandalized several areas of Cousins Middle School Thursday morning.

Shortly after midnight Thursday, Covington Police Officer J.W. Blankenship arrived at Cousins Middle School, 8187 Carlton Trail, to investigate an alarm in the school gym.

After a quick search of the area, Blankenship discovered a broken window in the south side doors. The school's principal soon arrived on the scene and searched the rest of the school with officers.

During the walkthrough, the officers discovered the health classroom in the gym had been ransacked and that a window over the main office had also been knocked out.

The principal then showed the officers a surveillance video which caught three suspects entering a health class in the gym.

The first suspect wore a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jean shorts, white socks and black shoes. The second suspect wore a Jason Voorhees Halloween mask, a black shirt with a gray hood and writing on the sleeves. The third suspect wore a white jacket with bright rainbow colors, dark pants and white shoes.

A further search of the area revealed damage to two trailers in the rear of the school. One of trailers had a broken window and the other's window had been forced open.

Anyone with information concerning this case is asked to call the CPD at (770) 786-7605.
