More than 60 students arrested for trashing high school for senior prank
TEANECK, N.J. — More than 60 students were arrested Thursday for trashing a New Jersey high school for a senior prank, according to WCBS.
Sixty-two students allegedly broke into Teaneck High School early Thursday morning. According to reports, the students greased doorknobs with Vaseline and urinated in the hallways.
Police were called to a burglar alarm at the school around 2:30 a.m. and discovered the vandalism.
“We blew up balloons, moved desks around, and stringed up lockers together, and next thing you know police are everywhere,” students Bryan Cruz and John Luis told WCBS.
The teens admitted the so-called prank got out of hand.
Juvenile students were turned over to their parents while 24 adult students faced a judge, WCBS said.
Seventeen local police departments were called in to round up the students.
Police said the damage was widespread but not permanent. Teaneck High School operated on a regular schedule on Thursday.
