Several High School students were reportedly charged for their roles in a prank at a high school in North Carolina that caused thousands of dollars worth of damage. 

A senior prank at East Lincoln High School in North Carolina went far enough to cause charges to be filed against several students, according to WRAL.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call at the school May 18 and said that raw meat and eggs had been put into the school’s HVAC system, WRAL reported. A sticky substance and glitter was also reportedly found inside the school and on seats of school buses, leading to over $5,000 worth of damage.
