Surveillance Video Aids in Catching School Vandals

A sticky situation at a school has come unglued. Police on Wednesday arrested two teenagers who they believe broke into their school last week and put glue in all the door locks.

The teens, whose names are being withheld because of their age, were charged with burglary and criminal mischief, police spokesman Capt. Tony Rode said.

The damage cost McArthur High School nearly $30,000, Rode said.

Police and school officials were able to break into most of the classrooms before students arrived, but witnesses said some students were still stranded outside classrooms, according to The Miami Herald.

Investigators used surveillance video to help catch the pair.
