Kids caught on surveillance video breaking into charter school

Police: Kids were between ages of 8 and 14

INDIANAPOLIS - Police were investigating after they said a group of kids ransacked a charter school on the city's east side Monday evening.

Authorities believe 15 to 20 kids -- all between the ages of 8 to 14 -- broke into the Avondale Meadows Academy school through an open kitchen door, officials with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said.

"The surveillance video showed the juveniles went through the halls of the school, they were playing basketball and started entering some of the classrooms inside the school," IMPD spokesman Officer Rafael Diaz said.

Police said the kids were caught on video vandalizing classrooms and stealing electronics.

Officials were going through the video and looking for evidence at the school to identify the kids involved.
