Investigators said four male juveniles and three men perpetrated a bizarre — and criminal — “senior prank” at Chopticon High School in Morganza, Md. Five of them, wearing masks, forced their way into the school at 3:40 a.m. and released somewhere around 72,000 ladybugs. Two others waited in cars outside.
While it’s nice to see a prank with a magical realism element to it, the upshot of this whole thing is less than hilarious. School staff spent “hours” vacuuming. 72,000 bugs were thrown into the trash. The four juveniles were charged with burglary, destruction of property, and disruption of school activities. Charges are forthcoming for the three adults.
