Pranksters take Westminster bronze plaques

Suspected high school senior pranksters stole two bronze signs totaling $3,000 from Westminster Schools of Augusta, the school's maintenance supervisor told police.

A 2-foot-by-2-foot bronze plaque was located on the west side of the school's entrance, and another 4-foot-by-1-foot sign was located on the Wheeler Road entrance to the school, according to an incident report from the Richmond County Sheriff's Office.

Maintenance Supervisor James Newbrey noticed the first plaque missing Tuesday but suspected it was a senior prank and did not file a police report, he told police Saturday.

A deputy at the scene did not find any evidence tht would lead to the suspects, but Newbrey said he does wish to prosecute.
