NUUANU, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Honolulu Police have arrested three students on Thursday for allegedly tagging eight buildings at Kawananakoa Middle School with graffiti.

Staff and student volunteers spent Wednesday morning covering up the graffiti that showed offensive images and foul language. Students were kept away from the area until all the graffiti was painted over.

Officials say fellow students noticed online posts regarding graffiti involving their classmates and notified school officials.

The three suspected students were brought in to speak to the administration. They were arrested for Criminal Property Damage in the Second Degree.
