Alaska State Troopers say they tracked down three teenagers suspected of vandalizing the Two Rivers School near Fairbanks using tips generated by video surveillance footage released to the public.

The suspects allegedly broke into the school on May 26 and stole items worth more than $7,000, troopers said in an online dispatch Sunday.

Two Rivers is an area of about 580 residents northeast of Fairbanks.

Video surveillance footage of the break-in aired on local TV stations and tipsters led troopers to the suspects, according to the AST.

The suspects are a 14-year-old and two 18-year-olds from the Two Rivers area. Some items from the school were recovered, troopers said.

Troopers have not yet released their names.

The case has been sent to area prosecutors.
