After information from the community led Harrodsburg police to identify six suspects in last week's vandalism at Mercer County High School, five people turned themselves in, authorities said.

Charged Saturday with criminal mischief were: Zachary Rossoll, Seth Heath, Nathan McGinnis, Sean Nolin and Owen Ethington. All but Nolin, 20, had been released on bond from the Boyle County Detention Center by Sunday evening.

A warrant has been issued for Alex Guay.

Early Thursday, "highly inappropriate" graffiti was discovered on the front of the Mercer County High School building and at least one school bus, according to schools spokeswoman Becky Holt. Friday was the last day of classes.
