SAN PEDRO, Calif. (FOX 11) - A group of children broke into a San Pedro Child Development Center and vandalized the facility, leaving behind $25,000 worth in damages.
Authorities said the kids ranged in age from 7 to 11.
The center had to call a hazmat team to clean out the center and threw out most of its possessions, including toys, diapers, formula, food and other supplies. The school had to be shuttered for a week, leaving parents without childcare.
Authorities charged five children with the extensive vandalism.
