PHOENIX — Three teenagers were arrested for allegedly causing $35,000 in property damages at Sunnyslope High School in three separate instances on October 25, 26 and 29.

According to the Phoenix Police Department, one 15-year-old and two 16-year-olds vandalized the school's gym, locker rooms and classrooms on the aforementioned dates.

Police say the teens vandalized the classrooms by breaking windows, doors and pouring laundry detergent on the floor.

Photos from the crime scene show shattered glass on the ground covered in detergent, doors with severe damage, and a classroom in complete disarray. Police say the extent of the damage totaled $35,000.

On October 29, police say detectives developed probable cause and arrested three suspects involved in all three incidents.

The teen suspects were booked into the Durango Juvenile Detention center for aggravated criminal damage and commercial burglary, according to police.

Following the arrests, Phoenix police tweeted, "Breaking windows and doors at school lands you in more than detention with the principal. You get a trip to juvenile detention for criminal damage and burglary charges."

Sunnyslope High School is located near 7th and Dunlap avenues in north Phoenix.
