LAPLACE, LA (WVUE) -

Nine boys are in hot water after breaking into LaPlace Elementary School, vandalizing several classrooms and damaging computers.  The St. John Sheriff's Office says the kids, ages 10-16, were arrested Tuesday, June 20, 2017 after deputies were called to the school on Greenwood Drive in reference to a burglary.

Upon arrives, deputies learned from a school official that a group of juveniles entered the building, vandalized several rooms and damaged several computer screens the night before about 8 p.m. During the initial investigation, the official could not provide an estimate for repairs to the classrooms and computer screens.
