Stafford, VA. A suspect was taken into custody on Tuesday by deputies with the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office after breaking into an elementary school during spring break and vandalizing a classroom.

On April 16, 2019, at approximately 8:00 a.m., Deputy Dupree responded to a reported vandalism at Ferry Farm Elementary School located at 20 Pendleton Road. An employee reported finding an office window broken and a classroom vandalized. Books were scattered throughout the classroom and a vase had been broken.

The deputy reviewed video footage of the suspect walking through a school hallway and entering a classroom. After about a minute, he reappeared and exited the building into a courtyard where there is no exit. He climbed onto the roof, causing damage to drain pipes, gutters, and a roof vent, and then jumped onto the school walkway. He left the area on a bicycle.

Deputy Dupree relayed the information and a photo of the suspect to Sgt. Scanlon. She recognized the suspect from a previous incident. On April 15, 2019, the suspect, identified as Jeremy Bushey, 21, of Fredericksburg, had been arrested for public intoxication.

Units then arrived at the suspect’s residence and took Bushey into custody. He admitted to the incident that occurred at the school and said he had been very intoxicated. He was incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail on a $2000 bond for breaking and entering with intent to commit a felony and destruction of property.
