Isabelle Robinson's letter in The New York Times describes the moments she hid in a dark closet while authorities said 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, a former student of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, opened fire, killing 17 victims.

Witnesses told Broward County deputies they saw William Kennedy and Kara O'Neil taking the items from the Parkland, Fla., school's memorial after 10 p.m., according to their arrest reports.

Deputies responding to the scene saw both O'Neil and Kennedy placing some of the items from the memorial in their auto.

After the report, law enforcement reportedly searched their auto and found teddy bears, pinwheels, and memorial plaques in the vehicle.

Deputies say that the memorial is located on the school grounds and fencing around the school.

The two "appeared to be under the influence of alcohol and were being belligerent", the incident report added.

Kennedy represented himself in court on Monday and has since bonded out on $1000.

Both suspects were arrested for removing or disfiguring a tomb or a monument and ordered held on $1,000 bail. "The subjects were at the monument at an unreasonable hour and maliciously meant to damage the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School monument".

"I feel the charging document has insufficient facia elements ... it is neither a tomb nor a monument".
