It's a bizarre list of items on a police report that two teens damaged after breaking into a local high school. Now police have released the video.

The two were caught on a surveillance camera during the break-in at J.H. Rose High School in Greenville early Saturday causing more than $10,000 in damage.

Authorities say the two broke some 50 windows in the school, sprayed fire extinguishers and splashed hot sauce in one classroom. The principal says practice CPR mannequins were damaged along with a model skeleton.

In all, 12 classrooms were ransacked and the culprits were in the high school for about an hour.

Police say the two, who were still on the run Wednesday, used a rock or brick to smash through a door.

Greenville police Thursday morning released surveillance video from the school, hoping someone might recognize the two. You can watch the video in its entirety by clicking the video link at the top of the story.
