TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Three 12- to 13-year-old girls were arrested Thursday after authorities said they damaged a business in Volusia County to the tune of $350,000.
The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office says that when the three girls vandalised Imperial Foam & Insulation in Ormond Beach, they “made their own mess.”
The sheriff’s office said that the three cut open bags of raw polystyrene material, wrote graffiti with spray paint, and drove forklifts into products, breaking them and damaging property. Pictures from the police show what the vandals did and how it turned out. A picture of a phallus that had been spray-painted on a wall was also given by the police. News Station 8 has decided not to show that picture.

Two of the girls even spray-painted their names on foam blocks, according to the police.
Soon after, an employee walked into the warehouse, heard the spraying, and saw the girls running out of the building.
Each girl was charged with trespassing on the property and burglary of a business and criminal mischief, which are both more serious felonies because of the state of emergency.
