PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Portland police say officers have arrested five teenagers in connection with vandalism at a high school that caused nearly $600,000 in damage.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (https://goo.gl/K9h5h7 ) the five teens were arrested in late October.

Police say a security camera captured some of the Oct. 15 incident at Roosevelt High School, which caused severe flooding and left classrooms in a newly-built part of campus unusable for the semester.

Surveillance footage obtained by the newspaper shows a group of boys running down hallways and entering and then leaving an unlocked science classroom. Before they sprint away, one of them is shown putting out a wet-floor caution sign.

Police say the boys - two of them 15 years old, two of them 16 and the other 17 - have been charged with criminal mischief and burglary.
