MENOMINEE, Mich. - Police in Menominee, Michigan have identified five students who may be connected to recent school vandalism.

Menominee Junior/Senior High School Principal Bill Paris told FOX 11 earlier this week that his school was broken into Sunday. He said vandals targeted his office along with several others.

The vandals sprayed shaving cream on desks and also spread cooking oil, fish heads and toilet paper on things.

Menominee Police Chief Brett Botbyl says two students have confessed to being involved in the vandalism, and three have hired attorneys. They're all seniors at the school.

Charges have not been filed. Botbyl says his department was following up on more leads Thursday. He expects to hand the police report to the county prosecutor Friday.

Botbyl said investigators identified the five students because of tips received through Crime Stoppers and Text-a-Tip.
