Teen Accused of Vandalizing PA School with Swastikas & Feces Says He’s ‘Sovereign Citizen’ Subject to ‘No Laws’

Turns out a teen apparently didn’t like going to school very much and he let it show with everything from swastikas to pooping on the floor, cops say.

The suspect is 18-year-old Joshua Rohland of Old Forge, Pa., and his alleged target was his alma mater, Old Forge High School.

As WNEP-TV and FOX56 reports, Rohland allegedly admitted to wrecking the high school with spray-painted hate symbols and epithets — and he told police he long fantasized about doing it.

But as for accountability, Rohland claimed to cops he was above it all, calling himself a “sovereign citizen” who was subject to “no laws.”

Authorities in Lackawanna County have a different legal interpretation, however.

That is why Rohland was jailed and charged with institutional vandalism, criminal mischief, burglary and other counts.

He is accused of entering the unlocked high school around 12:30 a.m. Sunday.

Inside, Old Forge Police say Rohland spray painted more than 40 offensive pictures and phrases and pooped on the boy’s locker room floor.

Among the graffiti, police say Rohland spray painted several red swastikas, along with phrases such as, “End is near” and “You’re all gunna die,” FOX56 notes.

He also broke a window in the elementary school, and surveillance video caught him giving the double middle finger to the camera for good measure, cops say.

Police tell WNEP they caught up with Rohland just three blocks away from the school after a 911 call about someone smashing windows.

Upon being taken into custody, Rohland had a knife and illegal narcotics, cops say.

At last report, he was lodged in Lackawanna County jail on $50,000 bail.
