Two former students and one currently enrolled are charged with smashing a southwestern Pennsylvania high school with a crowbar, a hatchet and a small sledgehammer.

Online court records don't list an attorney for 19-year-old Ronald Fay Boyer, who remained jailed Tuesday on charges he broke into and vandalized Burgettstown High School early Thursday and Friday morning last week. Boyer used to go to the school as did one of two juveniles, aged 16 and 17, who have been charged as juveniles and been released to their parents.

Smith Township police say the trio broke into cafeteria cash registers, a soda machine and smashed classrooms - including several computers - and broke a trophy case and stole class rings and other memorabilia.

The incidents have been captured on surveillance video which led police to question and arrest the teens.
