"The fake bills were discovered when a child tried to use one to pay for lunch. An administrator then tracked down several other students with fake bills. Those students all identified the boy.
"The boy—who was not identified—was turned over to the Department of Children and Families after authorities learned his guardians had warrants for their arrest."
Ok... Identified is used properly, but with the proximity to itself.. was he identified, or not? So the kids would point him out to the principal, but none of these goofy kids wanted to get his name in the paper... Either you're telling me that you're not going to identify this hoodlum, or that you're bad at your job as a reporter.
