A senior class prank gone awry has led to the arrests of at least 60 students at a northern New Jersey high school.

Police say officers arrested 62 students after responding to a burglar alarm at Teaneck High School at about 2:30 a.m. Thursday.

Officials say they found urine in hallways, petroleum jelly on doorknobs, desks flipped over, chairs broken, graffiti on the walls and balloons strewn throughout the building.

The 38 juveniles arrested are being turned over to their parents. The 24 students who are 18 or older were charged with burglary criminal mischief.

Authorities say they arrested most of the students involved, but a few may have sneaked away.

It's not clear how the students got into the school. The school reopened hours later.
