PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Five teenagers were arrested in connection with vandalism at Roosevelt High School that caused $600,000 in damages, police said.
The teens, ages of 15-17, were arrested at David Douglas High School in late October, Portland Police Bureau Sgt. Pete Simpson said.
They were charged with criminal mischief and second-degree burglary.
Roosevelt High School Principal Fililp Hristic previously told KOIN 6 News video cameras captured the students who broke into a 2nd-floor science classroom and turned on an emergency eye-wash shower.
The water reportedly caused massive damage to the walls, floors, elevators, computers, student and teacher property, 6 classrooms and 3 offices.
The school is currently undergoing multi-million dollar remodeling.
