Even though it is a tradition, some high school senior pranks can lead to trouble if taken to the extreme.

In Morganza, Maryland, seven high school students have been charged with burglary after breaking and entering into their high school and releasing 72,000 ladybugs in the school as part of their senior prank.

On Wednesday May 20, five students broke into Chopticon High School by forcing a door open at approximately 3:40 a.m. Once the students were inside, they released around 72,000 ladybugs into the school. According to USA Today, there were seven suspects that were identified, including two who waited in the car while the others went inside the school. The investigation also found that one student ordered the ladybugs off the Internet. According to Scripps Media.com, about 75 seniors pitched in with money for the prank.

Four juvenile males were charged with property destruction under $1,000, disruption of school activities, and fourth-degree burglary. The other three male suspects will be charged by criminal summons.
