San Diego police cite 13 high school students in senior-prank

May 26, 2009 |  6:09 pm

In an apparent senior-prank gone awry, 13 students at San Ysidro High School were caught by San Diego police early Tuesday morning in the process of moving hundreds of desks and chairs.

One student apparently had a master key to the school's classrooms and offices. The students were moving the furniture after midnight to a playing field to spell out  '09. But a silent burglar alarm alerted police.

The students were cited for trespassing and curfew violation. Officials said that the students will be required to pay  the cost of installing a new key system and for the overtime paid to janitors to move the furniture.
