2 seniors arrested after security video shows local high school vandalism

Rancho Cucamonga Police released surveillance video Monday of what they said is a group of students vandalizing their school and tearing down a goal post. 

Police said the students snuck on campus in the middle of the night and sprayed black graffiti all over the campus with words that read “Brown pride” and “Donald Trump 2016.”

“I think it’s just horrible what they did to the school it’s just really really terrible,” former student, Cameron Boyd, said. 

Police arrested two seniors and identified 16 other students that appeared in the video. As of Monday night another 15 students still needed identification. 

“There was a field goal post that was torn down, oil spilled into the swimming pool and just extensive damage throughout the entire school,” Deputy Jacob Bailey, Rancho Cucamonga Police Department, said. 

Photos also show toilet paper in the trees and trash cans on the roof. 

Monday was the last day of school for seniors who graduate on Wednesday. 

Students believe the vandalism was part of a senior prank that went too far. 

The Chaffey Joint Union High School District released a statement that read in part, “This is certainly not typical behavior from a school community who is known for a culture that is built on pride and a genuine love for their school. Many who are connected to RCHS are extremely disappointed in the actions of a few.”

Police said the students could face felony vandalism charges.
