The suspects then sprayed the classroom with the fire extinguisher before fleeing the building towards the Wilbeth/Arlington Homes.

Responding officers and detectives located the suspects in the 900 block of Barbara Avenue.

Three boys, a 16-year-old, a 17-year-old and a 13-year-old, were charged with breaking and entering.

They were placed in the custody of the Summit County Juvenile Detention Center.

The stolen IPads and laptop computers were returned to the school.
