Several high school seniors are facing criminal charges after reportedly releasing 72,000 ladybugs in their high school as a senior prank.

According to the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office, last Wednesday at approximately 3:30 a.m. five people in masks forced a door open at Chopticon High School in Morganza, Maryland. 

The pranksters released a swarm of ladybugs throughout the school, while two other people waited in a car.

Deputies have charged four minors with fourth-degree burglary, property destruction and disruption of school activities. Three other people will be charged as adults by criminal summons, Fox News reported. 

The ladybugs were reportedly ordered online by one of the suspects.
