(SFGATE) — SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Students at Adrian Wilcox High School in Santa Clara are devastated after vandals broke into their school and killed animals that were being raised as part of a school project.
Police detained three middle-school-aged boys Monday in connection with that and other damage, said Lt. Kurt Clarke, a Santa Clara police spokesman.
Officials called police after the school was hit at least twice over the weekend. On Friday night, vandals damaged the snack shack near the school's football field, said Jennifer Dericco, a spokeswoman for the Santa Clara Unified School District.
