MARYSVILLE, Wash. – At least two teens are under arrest, suspected of scrawling racist slurs, stealing and vandalizing a Marysville middle school overnight, police said.

A Marysville police spokesman said the 18-year-old men were caught Wednesday morning as they were stealing electronics.

The spokesman also said investigators are trying to determine if others were involved.

The racial slurs were found written into the floor at Totem Lake Middle School. The vandals also smashed glass and took a fire extinguisher, police said.

A group of volunteers from the local Grove Church helped clean up the damage.
