Three Calabasas High School students have confessed that they were responsible for anti-Semitic and racist graffiti found over the weekend at their campus.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department officials said the students admitted to the vandalism in written statements given to detectives. 

The scrawls included swastikas, a picture of Hitler and words such as "whites only" and "gas chamber." The graffiti were discovered Saturday morning.

KTLA News reported that the students had been detained but not criminally charged with the vandalism and that detectives planned to present the case to L.A. prosecutors.

A press conference was scheduled for Wednesday.
