Sheriff's deputies said Friday they are searching for three teenaged vandals who did an estimated $10,000 in damage to 31 portable classrooms at Palm Harbor University High School. Between 2 and 3 a.m. Dec. 20, surveillance cameras at the school captured images of the trio as they sprayed paint on the buildings and adhesive on doors and hinges. Investigators described the vandals as:

- A white male standing about 5 feet 4, weighing 140 pounds and wearing a large camouflage jacket, black hood, black face mask, long black pants and black shoes.

- A white male standing about 6 feet 2, with a slim build, short dirty-blond hair and wearing a dark long-sleeved T-shirt with a design on the back, and writing down the left sleeve.

- A white male about 6 feet with a slim build wearing a black hooded sweat shirt and black long pants.

Sheriff's officials ask anyone with information to call Detective Ken Sokolowski at (727) 582-6200 or, to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-8477.
