A crime spree ended with a school in DeKalb County on lockdown.

A group of teenagers is accused of a crime spree that ended with a school lockdown in DeKalb County, according to Channel 2 Action News.

Conyers police say four teens smashed the windows of more than a dozen cars in the Calloway Crossing and Travers Creek neighborhoods on April 12. 

After allegedly stealing a car, they went to Towers High in DeKalb, where they are not students, and were accused of trespassing with a loaded gun.

Police stopped 17-year-old Jontavious Clark in the stolen car in the parking lot, Channel 2 reported. A 15-year-old was reportedly found on campus with a gun in his pocket. 

The school was on lockdown for several hours.

Clark and a juvenile have been charged with theft by taking and second-degree burglary for thefts in Conyers, Channel 2 reported.
