The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office said that seven teens forced their way into the Chopticon High School in Morganza on Wednesday.

The suspects, who were wearing masks and sweatshirts, released about 72,000 ladybugs throughout the school. Four adults and three children were identified as the suspects.

One of the suspects ordered the ladybugs on Internet. The four children were charged with theft, destruction of property and disruption of school activities.
