Four juveniles have been arrested after Pinnacle High School was vandalized with racist and offensive graffiti in March. 

The Anti-Defamation League said the school had been vandalized overnight with swastikas and phrases such as "white supremacy" and "white power."

Phoenix police's bias crime unit took over the investigation and later received info from the community on the suspects involved in the vandalism. 

Police say several of the suspects admitted their involvement in the incident and said their intent was a prank and not meant to be bias related. 

The juveniles were arrested and released to their parents.
