Englewood police identified and arrested three men in their 20s who are suspected of a vandalism spree at Englewood High School.

The police arrested Michael Alan Trickel, 23, Anthony Ryan Meany, 25, and Chad Delgadillo, 28, in connection with the Jan. 12 incident at the high school.

The men are suspected of breaking into the school, smashing windows and computers in the STEM lab. They continued to smash windows and trophy cases in the band, choir and orchestra rooms. They set fire to plaques and banners.

The fires triggered the sprinklers that put out the fire. However, the sprinklers continued running and there was 4 inches of water in some rooms before the sprinklers were turned off.

Security cameras captured images of the vandals and copies of the still photos and the video were distributed to news media outlets.

The three men were taken to the Arapahoe County Detention Facility. They will be held there until official charges related to the vandalism spree are filed by the Arapahoe County District Attorney's Office.

In a news release, the Englewood police thanked the public, the media and Crime Stoppers for their assistance in the investigation.
