Six 14-year-old girls have been arrested for vandalizing Pasadena's Marshall Fundamental High School, marking every campus building with graffiti over the three-day weekend, Pasadena police said.

School administrators returned Tuesday from the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday to find lewd and derogatory remarks written in spray paint throughout the campus, police told the Pasadena Sun.

Administrators estimate from $4,000 to $5,000 in damage was done to the campus.

Police officers were able to track down the suspects through video surveillance, which captured some of the vandalism, officials said.

The names of the six girls arrested were not released because they are minors.
