The Kern County Sheriff's department reported that the juveniles broke into school property on June 5 and stole six vehicles, causing about $200,000 damage.

The Sheriff said the suspect were seen on surveillance stealing the six vehicle Friday night and damaging the vehicles and the school property.

The night before, the Sheriff said, three of the four suspects broke into the school and caused $22,000 damages.
