ROANOKE Co., Va. (WSET) -- Two 22-year-olds have been charged with breaking into a local school.

The Roanoke County Police Department said officers saw a vehicle parked in front of Cave Spring High School on March 10 around 1:30 a.m. near the construction fence.

They said there was a gap in between the fence so they conducted a security check of the construction site of the school.

Police said they found Zachary Foutz, from Roanoke, and Beau Carter, from Kents Store, inside the school area.

Foutz, who went to Cave Spring, is currently a Liberty University football player with one year of eligibility left to play.

He's been charged with burglary, obstruction of justice, and larceny.

Carter is charged with burglary and obstruction of justice.

Police said they are also investigating a report of fireworks being set off inside the school.

They said there is no other information at this time, but wanted to add that this is a huge safety concern for the police department and the school system. It is illegal to be inside the construction site and it's also extremely dangerous and police don't want anyone to be injured or killed.
