62 students arrested for vandalizing school in senior prank
More than 60 New Jersey high school seniors were arrested early Thursday after allegedly breaking into their school for a class prank overnight.
Police say the students urinated in the school’s hallways, flipped desks over and greased door handles.
Police responded to a burglary alarm at Teaneck High School shortly before 2:30 a.m. When they arrived, several students tried to run away but officers found dozens of teens still there, some hiding, and significant damage throughout the school, according to Teaneck Police Sgt. John Garland.
Garland said officers found balloons throughout the building, flipped desks, petroleum jelly on doorknobs and urine in the hallways. Police also watched some of the alleged criminal activity on the closed-circuit security system as it was happening.
Several of the students told police that it was part of a senior class prank. They all face misdemeanor and burglary charges. The school opened Thursday as planned.
What’ an appropriate punishment for the students involved?
Are the charges against them enough?
