By The Associated Press

LOUISVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Two men face burglary and vandalism charges in connection with the theft and destruction of property at Winston Academy over the weekend.

Sheriff Jason Pugh said 20-year-old Vernon Brown and 18-year-old Hunter Glass will appear in court this week for an initial appearance.

Pugh says both men admit to breaking into the school and doing a large amount of damage.

He says they took computers, a video camera, cash, and other items from the school.

Pugh says most of the items were recovered, including several computers a dive team from Philadelphia pulled from a Winston County creek.

Pugh says the men have no ties to the school.
