2 teens accused of vandalizing Tucson junior high

TUCSON - Two teenage brothers have been accused of burglarizing and vandalizing a junior high school in Tucson.

Pima County Sheriff's officials say the 13-year-old and 14-year-old boys are facing charges of third-degree burglary and aggravated criminal damage.

The two unidentified teens have been released into their mother's custody.

Deputies responded to Flowing Wells Junior High School early Sunday after a 911 caller reported seeing individuals on the roof.

They detained two juveniles and found a fire extinguisher, a generator on a wheeled cart and two air tanks.

They say there was damage to a fenced gate at the school, flooding in a storage room and a large hole in the roof of the pool house where exhaust fans were removed. A fire extinguisher also was set off inside a room.
