EDMONTON - Two people broke into S. Bruce Smith School late Tuesday night, wreaking havoc in the junior high school's library.

Edmonton Public School Board spokeswoman Jane Farrell said the young people sprayed a fire extinguisher in the library, leaving behind about $125,000 in damages.

Computers, windows and shelves were damaged at the school at 5545 184th St. A 15-year-old boy was arrested as he was running from the building.

His accomplice was not found Tuesday night.
