Several students cited after a prank at Trumann High School

TRUMANN, AR (KAIT) – A group of teens will be spending extra time at school cleaning up a big mess at Trumann High.

According to Trumann Police, 11 teens are accused of breaking into Trumann High School early Monday morning.

Police were tipped off by Walmart employees after officers were flagged down and told that a group of teens came into the store dressed in all black and bought "multiple items which could be used for mischief."

Police say the group spread forks and condoms throughout the courtyard area. They're also accused of spreading toilet paper, silly string, and yarn throughout the hallways, walls, windows and doors.

Police say sidewalks were also chalked and several furniture items were moved and wrapped with plastic. The front doors of the school were also tied together with wire.

During an interview, police learned one of the students got up on the roof and dropped down into the courtyard, unlocked a door, and let the other students into the building.

Officers were able to ID the teens through surveillance video from Walmart and the school.

During interviews with school officials and police, the teens reportedly admitted to the prank saying they agreed to not do any "permanent harm or break anything."

According to the incident report, the group told police they expected to be caught and have to clean up the school.

Six of the students, all adults, were cited for Criminal Trespass and Criminal Mischief.
