Details of Incident: (Who, What, When, Where, Why)
At approximately 5:40 p.m. on June 29, the Tech LTA told the four boys they would need to leave the Franklinton Library for the rest of the day, due to their repeated disregard to her warnings to stop being disruptive and to stop using the Internet terminals inappropriately. On their way out, the boys stopped to sign up for Teen Read 2000. I signed them up and they continued to joke amongst themselves. Less than five minutes after they departed, a girl reported that there was urine in the elevator. When I went to check, I also saw that one of them had left his bentcil, a sign-up prize for Teen Read 2000. Due to the timing and the boys' behavior while in the Library, I believe that one or more of them is responsible for the elevator vandalism.
