Police: Seniors moved school furniture

Police in San Diego said 13 students moved about 400 pieces of furniture out of classrooms at their high school as part of a senior prank.

Investigators said the alarm company employed by San Ysidro High School contacted police at about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday and said motion sensors were going off inside the building, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported Wednesday.

The school was found with desks and chairs stacked in hallways and furniture on the school's field arranged in the shape of 09, officers said. The students entered the school using a master key that was taken from a teacher in March, school administrators said.

Police said the students who were 18 received citations while the younger perpetrators were released to their parents. Principal Hector Espinoza said officials have not yet decided whether the students will be barred from walking down the aisle at graduation.
