 The suspects were taken into custody on outstanding felony warrants for Malicious Injury to Property yesterday.

 The arrest warrant stems from an ongoing investigation into the vandalism of a bank of lockers at a school on the 8000 block of Goddard Road in February of this year. Evidence indicates the suspects, who were students at the time, knocked over a series of free-standing lockers, causing more than $1,000.00 in damage. That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant.
